Colleges Have an Ethical Responsibility to Prepare All Students for the World of Work
Nancy Hoffman, The Hechinger Report
Many people make enormous sacrifices to go to community and four-year colleges, too often with blind faith that a college degree will deliver stable work, a satisfying career, and a salary that can repay college debt. Yet, some colleges still treat the degree as the end point, rather than viewing it as a credential that will land students a good first job, writes Nancy Hoffman of Jobs for the Future in this opinion piece.
Hoffman calls for a radical reimainging of career services to prepare students, especially those attending community colleges, for life beyond graduation.
