A tech-driven world needs tech-educated workers

A tech-driven world needs tech-educated workers. So it is great if the individual studies engineering or science in college. But a History degree is not going to do the trick and the media rarely distinguishes between students studying useful subjects in college (that are in demand in the work world) and those studying “fun, interesting, but non-useful” subjects.

The goal is not “a post-secondary” education. The goal is a set of skills whether obtained in high school, college, a trade school or online that will allow the individual to compete in today’s job market or better yet start her own business that will hire others.
