College isn’t for everyone. It’s time to challenge the status quo and embrace the potential of apprenticeships in tech, healthcare, finance, and more—which can provide a sustainable pathway to economic opportunity.
For decades, college has been the only respectable way to access the world of work, despite paralyzing tuition and a dire lack of practical
skills that has left 40 percent of college graduates underemployed, unfulfilled, and struggling to repay student loan debt.
Education and workforce expert Ryan Craig explores how a modern apprenticeship system will allow students and job seekers to jump-start their careers by learning while they earn—ultimately leading to greater workforce diversity and geographic mobility.
With a deep dive into the history behind America’s outdated college system, Craig reveals:
- The origins of the student debt crises and admissions scandals
- Why apprenticeships are an effective pathway to career opportunity
- What America can do to catch up with other nations making apprenticeship opportunities broadly available
- Where students and job seekers can go to land an apprenticeship
