By 2024, the economy will create 16 million jobs that require more than a high school education but not necessarily a college degree. However, community colleges’ on time graduation rates are under 20%.

In this episode of the Report Card, on the AEI Education Podcast, host Nat Malkus talks to Grace Suh of IBM about an effort that seeks to address this problem. In P-tech schools, students earn a high school diploma and an Associate’s degree tied to the needs of local industry partners who provide workplace experiences.
