Gen Z Is Forgoing College to Attend Trade Schools

A report from Vice last year pointed out that Gen Z, which consists of those born between the mid-’90s through the early 2000s are attempting to avoid the mistakes of millennials, and focus on getting jobs that pay well without acquiring useless degrees and crushing debt.

Somewhere right now, Mike Rowe is smiling, as he’s been pushing this idea for some time now, and even has gone so far as to dismiss the importance of the University in the age of having every bit of knowledge you can ask for at your fingertips, including free college lectures you can find online.

For all intents and purposes, the U.S. should be considering this move by Gen Z as a wonderful, and smart idea. However, this move away from University is going to cause some serious problems for the left. ...

Some people have needed (or at least wanted) a hole in the head. So trepanning has been done successfully for millenia by "primitive" practitioners. One such skull was found, supposedly 7K yrs old. They can show forensically that the hole area had time to heal before later death.

This is not to say other operations like heart surgery don't need modern techniques.

Germany has emphasized vocational training for non-college students. Unlike America, where college is practically a civil right, it's a bit harder to get into college there.

I personally would not want someone, who has been taught by professionals, to do open heart surgery on me. "

Very true. You probably wouldn't wake up...

@JAG, good point. I might also add that some jobs are necessary for you to go to university, and to get a Master’s or Doctorates degree, I personally would not want someone, who has been taught by professionals, to do open heart surgery on me.

So there needs to be a healthy balance I reckon.

I also might add that those who need to "go" to college can do it online.

That is unless, you look at college as a party house instead of a learning center.

The obstacle (of many) is (and I speak generally) is:

1. They don’t know what to do.
2. They go with the flow.
3. They think a degree is necessary.
4. A degree will help their chances of getting a job.
5. Etc

Perhaps we can add on the list that the kids aren’t taught to think in advance about these things and parents don’t really nurture kids to think about these important decisions. However the kids are without excuse for their lack of thought.

Just a thought.

Good news! My husband is a Tool and Die Maker and has been saying for years there aren't enough skilled workers in his field. In fact, he's been wondering who will take his place when he retires in 2020. (Heads up, Gen Z - there's jobs available in the machinist industry.)

Excellent news!
Maybe that guy on TV with the show about doing other people's jobs, is having an impact. I saw one episode where he spoke to a school in Florida with a large gym full of these trade students.
I guess the sight of so many English-majors or History-majors, working in coffee shops and restaurants after graduating, is having an impact.
Yet many economists (esp. those in the traditional universities) will say, 'over their lifetimes, a college graduate will earn more than a high school graduate.'
That may be true when you include all the lawyers, doctors, etc. who earn over $200k per year, but not for those with majors in English, Feminist Studies, or even more esoteric fields.

But this may come as a shock to their families, where the parents have scrimped and saved $$ for their kid's college educations.
Have you heard the joke about the Jewish mother wheeling her twin baby grandsons in a baby carriage through Central Park? A friend comes up to her and she says, "Let me introduce you to my grandsons--here's Lester--he's going to be a lawyer, and here's Larry--he's going to be a doctor"

I heartily support the movement back to skilled labor. People will always need roofs, people will always need their cars fixed, and people will always need trees cut. The ones who learn to work with their hands will always have jobs...

Of course their are those degrees that require advanced specialization. Engineering, lawyers, doctors, etc all need extra training considering what is at stake with their jobs...

If college is a necessary option for the career, then find a university that places the graduate in the job they went to college for. I went to a “ teacher’s college“, thus I graduated to the job I trained for. Now a days, it’s not helpful for young schools of mush to graduate children who will move back with Mom and Mom, and sit in the back seat of the Toyota Prius till they figure out “ this ain’t working “.
However, one thing about kids these days, everything is permissible but nothing is forgivable if it pertains to godliness, pursuing Christ, marriage and children.

Excellent article. Universities and colleges have become institutions of indoctrination, not education. Ask any christian student in this system if they are permitted to exercise free speech defending their biblical beliefs. 94% of all professors are left-wing if not communist and their ideologies are injected into every course taught...not just the social sciences.

As history has proven time and time again, the left's (antichrist) theories sound noble in theory, but fail miserably in practice.

So thankful that GEN Z is waking up, and pray this will spark of revival of seeking God.
