Northeastern study: Not enough spots in Massachusetts vocational schools
WBUR - 09/15/2014
Among the issues the next Massachusetts governor will face is a growing disconnect between the number of manufacturing jobs available in the state, and workers with enough skills to fill those positions.
Researchers at Northeastern University estimate that Massachusetts manufacturers will have to fill 100,000 jobs over the next decade just from retiring workers, let alone from any new jobs created.
And, a new study by Northeastern University Law School says that thousands of students aren’t able to get into vocational and technical high schools in order to get training for those jobs.
