Why are so many college graduates unemployed? Reports suggest that colleges are not adequately preparing graduates with the skills they need to enter the workforce. Larry believes that the solution to education will come from the free market. Educational institutions should look to employers to find out what skills are valuable in the workforce, and then build curricula around these competencies.
This will provide a truly useful education that helps graduates find employment. When the government steps in and dictates what curricula should be, it becomes a middleman that does nothing but drive up costs. We need to get the government out of higher education so that schools and employers can partner to create innovative educational solutions.
