Investing in our Future
Do you believe in funding 2-year schools, apprenticeships, and CTE programs? Share with your network!
In America, there are countless untapped jobs that require more than a high school education but not necessarily a four-year degree. And going to a technical school and learning a trade, or participating in apprenticeships leave Americans with high-paying careers. Better yet, some places offer these services for free or at very low-cost.
Many students attending 4-year universities end up in heaps of debt, scrambling to find a low-paying base job after college. But there are other opportunities that would expand the path to a bright future -- a plumbing apprenticeship, for instance, can allow someone to leave with no-debt and a job that starts off at $80,000 a year.
We need to put greater investments into two-year colleges, community colleges, apprenticeship programs, and career and technical training programs to give all Americans a path to a fulfilling career.
It is crucial we give Americans a fair shot and the freedom to build the future for themselves and their families. The more we invest in training, two year colleges and CTE programs, the more opportunities Americans have to thrive.
