Better training

I read the articles every day and find them usually very good. President Barack Obama recognizes the good efforts of Community College of Allegheny County to educate students for job training linked to industry needs, but the training that the students receive is really not helping them to find jobs.

I will just guesstimate that approximately one out of 15 students who are trained for “industry’s needs” may find success in obtaining a job. The other 14 just probably give up or get a job unrelated to the training that they paid for. Who benefits from this training? It is very obvious that the schools are the beneficiaries for what they charge for the training.

What our government should do is promote a two-year college, tuition-free, but students must maintain a passing grade. The students can then pursue more education to help improve their search for a better job.
