On Jobs, dreams, big plans: Blackhawk students graduate
Employers want people who can make them money!!!!!!.In "reality" Bachlors and Masters degrees are typically not required for entry level work. .The tech college system has 48,000 students with bachlors and masters degrees, because the tech college system teaches exactly what employers want... The U.W. couldn't give a fig what employers desire or need..H.R. professionals who don't recognize the value in tech college training are fools... but the good news is that most H.R. departments do recognize BTC and the value of their grads..Most employers want a bachlors or masters? For executive positions maybe... BTC produces entry level workers for the most part... Do these people think a two year degree/diploma are going to make them captains of industry?.If you went to BTC to get a job that requires a Masters degree... I think it's not BTC's problem.
On Former city official chosen as Blackhawk Technical College dean
It's funny... As soon a couple of potent responses are posted; this article finds it's way off the top and into archives... Whilst Gregg Peck's nattering stays on the top for days and days and days... .
On New program will benefit employers, future workers
Gregg,.I hope these folks are aware of the fact that today there are 48,000 (fourtyeight thousand) university graduates in the Wisconsin Technical College System.. Primarily because the Tech College system is adaptable and actually prepares student learners for the jobs that are in the market....Food for thought.
On Poverty poses challenges for educators
A respectful question for the several posters who say today's curriculum lacks relevance..What specifically do you say is not relevant in Janesville's curriculum?.And what specifically would you choose to replace the thins that no longer apply?.I ask this because basic arithmitic and the ability to write clearly are the main places where high school grads are failing. These are things that are relevant in today's world in my opinion.
hh,.Blaming poor scores and drop out students on Mexicans and the dumming down of curriculum is just wrong..Students who want to excell and achieve at the highest levels are not hindered in Janesville in the slightest..Students who have a family, church, community, support network and the desire to learn are never quenched... .While sometimes the bar is lowered for those who are not high achievers... Those students who strive for excellence are provided with everything they need... Teachers love them and the example they set and are FAR more willing to go the extra mile for any student who puts in efffort... whether they are gifted or not.
analertcitizen.You are perfectly right.. It is a stereotype!.Hooray for you and your excellent family..Sadly your story is the rare small fraction. .The fact is that single parent homes more often have children who are unsupervised or sent off to child care centers who do what "raising" of the children gets done..Or the children are raised by other children or gangs..Every example like yourself fills me with happiness that you have been blessed
I'll save you the time Gregg,.Broken homes are the cause of poverty..Broken homes are the cause of poor test scores... Not money..Children don't need money to learn to read or do math... It happens all over the world with great succsess when poor children have two parents.
On Are UW System reserves too high?
The money was hidden... and then found..The U.W. denied and obfuscated until it was impossible to continue with the lies..They were behaving dishonestly..All involved should be swept from the roster..Fees should be frozen until competent people can be placed in stewardship of U.W. funds.
On Should Yovani be suspended?
Hey.. He is a "Player".15 game suspension for a shortstop equals 15 days off the field..15 game suspension for a pitcher equals maybe two starts missed...(two days off the field).I say suspend him the time it would take to accumulate 15 starts in whatever rotation the Brewers are currently using...That would be fair in my opinion.
On BTC moving forward on Milton project
WTP..While the closing of the aviation center is tragic, consider that Advanced Manufacturing jobs in Wisconsin that are currently unfilled are numbered in the thousands, maybe ten thousand... Unfilled positions because people are not trained to do them..There are Zero aviation jobs open in our neck of the woods...Zero..It's harsh to cut an aviation program that has such a legacy of excellence. But it is a huge investment if you consider the program grads must all leave the Rock and Green county area (tax base)...... if we were living in times of great surplus, maybe that would not matter so much... But I think this is where the decision germinated.
