The Skills Trap

Is there anyone left who doesn’t think the view of higher-education-as-workforce development is all that? Count Have You Heard among the skeptics. In our latest, we hear from Mike Rose, author of Back to School¬†about why tailoring school to a narrow set of workplace skills is such a terrible idea. And we meet a home health aide who went to community college in hopes of earning more money, fell in love with learning, and “spread her wings,” emerging with big goals and even bigger demands for what her community deserves. One of our best episodes to date!
