Challenging The College Model

This edition of iCR focuses on education in a discussion with Annette Norris. Norris is Director of Education at the Academy of Manufacturing Careers in Jackson, Michigan. Highly skilled manufacturing jobs, like highly technical welding jobs are going unfilled in our state due to a lack of a trained workforce. Norris has done such things as creating Welding Camp and a series of supportive programs which begin to get Jackson area school children into directed, hands-on, technical education experience as early as fourth grade. Norris challenges the current system in many schools of delaying any hands-on technical ed. until junior year in high school. She also offers challenges to the Michigan graduation requirements in math and to the single minded idea that college is the only path to future success.
