If Democrats want to win over more non-college educated maybe talk about non-college education?

During the democratic primary debates college was mentioned 146 times. Apprenticeships were mentioned once (can anyone guess by who?).

This is despite union apprenticeships being shown to provide great results.

Non-college education disproportionally impacts the lives of the poor and ethnic minorities.

So why the obsession with colleges, universities and the Ivy League?

@LeoSammallahti "Teaching your employees is costly, so why not make them pay huge sums to universities to study in programmes that have no business in universities in order to prepare for positions we will not open?"


The status quo is bad for business and bad for academia. But sadly it's cheap for business in the short term and that trumps everything.
