May 17, 2010 – Hour 2

This weekend the New York Times published an article wondering if
we encourage too many people to pursue a traditional college eduction. 
Should we put more energy into vocational training and other "practical"
job skills, rather than encouraging people to get a Bachelor’s Degree?
Our panel is:
Dr. Robert Lerman, a Professor of Economics at American University,
and the Urban Institute’s first Fellow in Labor and Social Policy
Marty Nemko, a career coach and host of the radio talk show Work
with Marty Nemko on an NPR affiliate in San Francisco.  He writes about
work and education at his website,
Khalilah Harris, Executive Director of the Baltimore Freedom
Dr. Scott Dantley, Associate Vice President for Planning and
Assessment at Coppin State University.
