Isn’t education essentially the same as OJT or shop classes?
Depends on who you talk to. Many people see a difference between training and education. The point is that the writer writes about the lack of skilled workers in manufacturing jobs and then closes the article by saying that the real problem is a lack of education. I can guarantee you he’s talking about going to college. The Democrats are scared that fewer people will go to college.
Not if a person does't get hands on training. We used to get troops back from AIT maintenance training and they had no clue how to remove / repack and reinstall something as simple as a wheel bearing. BUT, they got to read in out of the manuals.
