    Vocational Training and Working Class Colleges

    Vocational Training and Working Class Colleges

    We discuss whether working class students are served well by a higher ed curriculum that eschews vocational training.



    Recently, Albert Fu (Kutztown) pushed back on those who oppose fielding curricula with vocational focuses.



    The anti-job view is elitist. I'm a second-gen immigrant, that teaches a lot of first gen college students. I went to college to open up career opportunities, as do my students.— Albert S. Fu (@Professor_Fu) January 27, 2020



    I teach at a school that serves working class students, and this view struck a chord with me. I assembled a panel of faculty teaching at colleges who teach at colleges that serve the working class to discuss the role of vocational training in higher ed.



    Albert Fu is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Kutztown University.



    Michelle Corbin is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Worcester State University.
