State Sens. Rob Teplitz (D-Dauphin County) and Lisa Boscola (D- Northampton County) don’t believe every student should go to college after high school.
Instead, they said students should have more opportunities to be trained for technical jobs that don’t require a college degree.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projected more than 40 million job openings will be filled by workers who do not have a bachelor’s degree by 2014.
Boscola said students need to know that there are practical applications and a lot of job opportunities for technical careers.
