Predicament of our Job Gap

apply-jobs-engfind-job

If you are reading this and have a job or may be unemployed this article may add some light into the future. Depending on your age you may or may not have seen the pendulum swing back and forth with jobs available, jobs not available, low unemployment rates and high unemployment rates. The 21st century has brought a  new phenomenon for the workforce of America. The categories in the past now needs to add a new class. Opportunities with new employment will be for job skills that have not  been required in the past. This spells out clearly that we may be approaching job opportunities in high abundance. The conundrum is where will you be qualified. If you are in high school or college your decisions about your employment possibilities lies at the forefront of what knowledge and skills will be in demand.

It is apparent how important schools and colleges become as our future is determined by the choices we make. A Georgetown University study acknowledges the importance of education and post secondary education. What seems to be obvious is your choices should consider level of education and skills necessary to achieve your goals of living out a life of fulfillment. We are created to enjoy our work role in life. Knowing this we need to understand how important it is to consider our future and the journey we will take in our lives. Schools and post secondary education leaders and teachers have a commitment to open the door to possibilities. This path needs to prompt an understanding which makes a difference in our life when I get up every day and go to work. Today, in 2019 our rewards of what we do necessitates learning to the level it makes us happy with a skill and being competitive in a workforce in need. A high school education alone simply provides our population that usually exists on an hourly work job. It is usually a job that may have a skill that is fleeting and what once was competitive or necessary could be replaced with technology or becomes unnecessary.  The more advanced learning obtained gives all of our job seekers on a track for being competitive and skilled.

Clearly, attending post secondary education provides this population a higher lifetime income. Associate Degree attainment in demand skill areas earn lifetime income equal to a Bachelor Degree lifetime income on average 28% of the time. A Bachelor Degree graduate has the potential on average earning in a lifetime of 2.3 million dollars.

Realizing all of this documented information what could be the spasmodic outcomes that are going to happen that may cause America to have employers required to look outside of the borders to fill their gaps of employment? This this circumstance is present today. Our perceptible vision of what will transpire may be clouded by rhetoric which singles out solutions where harm may actually come with bias, prejudice or individual benefit. Foreseen predicaments that will be issues in the near future.

  • Lack of employer and school articulations with meaningful outcomes of career discovery and feasibility for future occupations
  • Reduction of opportunities for citizens to locate and learn appropriate skills to be competitive
  • Accepting political solutions for an educational blueprint which focuses on financial liquidity
  • Lack of understanding the freedom of choice for communities to provide locally or statewide education equal to the needs
  • Lack of support for diverse opportunities by special niches of schools
  • Teacher retention and performance improvement
  • Flexibility on delivery methods of obtaining an education
  • Creativity reduced with obstructions by a cold oppressive regulatory environment
  • Reactionary leaders
  • accessibility
  • affordability
  • Quick fixes
  • Governed schools strictly by regulations

Knowing these predicaments our society needs to become involved in the decision-making for their schools in America. This is one area of outcomes that can be affected by the citizens of the country. U.S. citizens have always been committed to education because of its potential outcomes. There has been a slow gradual slippage of ability to make a difference from the majority world census in the education footprint in our community.

Schools and Colleges in the past few years have been under stress from the financial influences governing public schools and schools who have accepted federal government assistance. The recognized schools today in America who have been or could be affected by the financial strings attached to their schools:

Types of Postsecondary Schools
  • Colleges.
  • Universities.
  • Community colleges.
  • Junior college.
  • Career school, technical school, or vocational / trade school.
  • Public vs. Private.
  • Special Interests.

Schools are an outgrowth of community needs and freedom of choice by their citizens. This existence has been present for many years but in the 21st century the control and decisions of existence has been lost at the local and state levels. Individuals have run and championed the understanding of censoring what used to be community freedom of choice schools to outliers who scapegoat some providers. Any type of school being targeted for demise which offers needed skill and knowledge development should not be removed from the community’s populations opportunity.

 

Since 2016, one hundred career schools plus have been closed. In the Forbes magazine December 13, 2018, there is a frightening article entitled “Will Half Of All Colleges Really Close In The Next Decade?” It reported that 25% of private colleges were now running at a deficit. Even public colleges expenses have outpaced revenue for the past three years.

As a citizen of this country this predicament will likely affect each of us. The answers t these issues you may have heard will not be the quick fix to the issues. Re-engineering schools will come from innovation and ground roots of community and state. The basis of free college is absurd. You and my fellow citizens will pay a high price to make that happen. This will only attach more restraints to a system that already holds burdens of financial strings over our schools. Many thousands of students and individual schools from the list above have been closed in the last three years which were motivated by federal government actions.

It is time to separate from a predicament to state and community local control.

Senator Elizabeth Warren

Senator Warren is one of the best scapegoat rhetoric communicators of “who are the bad people?” We have to many dictatorial candidates around the world who have found sensationalism to be their mode of operation. To be sure that when we attack with sensationalism is a way to get attention and produce fear into your hearts and minds. When individuals attack race, religion or freedom it has been destructive historically. The only thing we don’t know about our future is the history we have not read. Our American leaders have for centuries found the purpose for American citizens to have freedom of choice. When anyone has directed their motivation to reduce your freedom or take it away diminishes the value of your voting rights. I have always been a proud American who has had a long history of family who have fought for those rights. When ever I see someone spouting rhetoric with generalized threats and accusations about institutions or people I am concerned. Senator Warren’s lack of knowledge on the service of all educational institutions is transparent. Her direct attack on all career schools is a complete generalization of all schools in that particular sector.  Anyone who has taken this position encourages actions for innocent people being hurt. Over the past eight years it has been devastating to see how students, communities, and teachers across the country have been negatively affected by being associated with career schools. My career has taken me across all levels of education for the past fifty years. My association with America education has given me the opportunity to meet and work with a great number of dedicated and committed educators. It is without question the actions of people like Senator Warren has influenced the destruction of the ability of these people to perform great outcomes for student lives and teachers to perform great achievements for their students.

We all must believe in a system that was created to deal with the bad actors in any individual or organization. Our freedom was derived from these guidelines by our forefathers to not make prejudicial accusations or generalizations about masses of people. These protections allow for a nation that embraces creativity and diversity. As an educator now for fifty years I have always been proud of the systems that has been developed to meet the needs of a nation, state and community. The opportunities of education have arisen by the pure knowledge of supply and demand in each of our habitats where we live. Whenever we strike down anyone of these opportunities we are affecting our citizens residing in these communities. They are faced with economic issues, employment issues, crime issues, welfare issues and mental health. By striking down any provider in a community which understands the need of that community there becomes a great gap. To maintain a strong healthy community the population needs to remain competitive by being a nation strong with well-educated people. By attacking any niche of education for destruction there will be a group of people adversely affected.

America strong is the right to attend private schools, charter schools, public schools, nonprofit schools, career schools, community colleges, secular and non secular schools. All of these schools and colleges were an outgrowth of freedom of choice. Take any one of these offerings away and you are affecting a specific category of student with specific needs. Professional teachers are equipped and trained to work with their student base and are familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of the entering student enrolled.

As a U.S. citizen I am making an appeal to you to be wary of all out attacks on institutions that have served us well over 200 years. We are a diverse country with varied needs. Individuals who are egocentric with polemic views can put our communities in grave danger. Be selfish with your freedom and don’t adhere to any proposal of action that may take it away from you.

The time has come where your communication can no longer be the silent majority but will be an out cry of sanity for our communities and neighbors. Communicate with your friends, neighbors, and elected officials that now is the time to let your voice be heard.

Education inherently was to be guided and built by the states and their local communities. There is enough proof today to see we have followed a money trail that has taken us away from this local control and the ability to have the freedom of choice.

As you proceed to all our elections national, state, and local be sure to be informed. False declarations and false accusations need to be discovered by you the consumer of news. You cannot depend on what you read or hear may be true. The facts need to be your guide. Never, Never give up your freedom to have a choice. Your vote in the future may be to keep your freedoms or give them away.

New Corporation Looks to Fill the Gap

Schools and colleges have great opportunities to meet the needs of their communities. Looking back on the origination of why proprietary schools were in such demand was the necessity to provide education and training in the workforce areas of need. Employers would say in that time the only way to meet the skills gap was to look to proprietary schools who considered the trades and technical skills as a way to meet the demand needs. As the pendulum swings the gap areas are clearly delineated by the workforce and their frustration with the lack of trade and technical school graduates. It is indeed refreshing to see a curriculum publisher who has stepped out in front to meet these needs for schools. It appears, NEXTSTEP has made entry and implementation for new and current schools very transparent. I have included the announcement below. It has been a tough time with schools in the last several years. Returning to our root expertise with the demand makes perfect sense.

Quantum Educational Services , a leader in Higher Education content, counseling and consulting,is pleased to announce the launch of NEXTSTEP, an educational product designed to help Career Schools , Community Colleges and Companies bridge the skills gap.
> IT, Cybersecurity, Health Care and Project Management are all changing and educational institutions have not changed to meet employer needs. As a result, 3.5 million open jobs go unfilled because Colleges do not address Company needs. In addition, imbedded certifications are a must in order to demonstrate competence. NEXTSTEP has partnered with CompTIA, ESPA and others to provide demonstrably qualified employees.
