The U.S. Education System Isn’t Giving Students What Employers Need by Michael Hansen
There’s a direct disconnect between education and employability in the U.S., where employers view universities and colleges as the gatekeepers of workforce talent, yet those same institutions aren’t prioritizing job skills and career readiness.
