Not Just Your Grandpa's Job Careers through shop class

Parents today insist that their children attend college right after high school.

Many high school graduates enter college immediately after graduation due to societal and parental pressure, even if they do not have a plan of action.

However, there are many rewarding jobs that do not require a college degree.
These are skilled trade jobs like welders, surveyors, electricians, and plumbers(like Mario).
Students can be made more aware of these types of jobs, as well as begin to train for them through the re-institution of shop classes in their high schools.
Help expand our students' careers and bring back shop class.
