Impact of Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter on the Trade Education in America
If the Covid-19 pandemic was not enough, Black Lives Matter campaign added to the overall effect on the educational systems not just in the United States but worldwide, leading to the near-total closures of schools, universities, and colleges. Although there are ones that are blossoming as they sure have learned a way to utilize cloud – making it a part of their DNA.
Such an astonishing number of analyses and forecasts have already been published of the possible impact on higher education that it is really easy to lose track. Our focus though is America’s education system and its a fact – that most state governments have temporarily closed educational institutions in an attempt to contain the spread of Covid-19 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is no different.
The year 2020 is sure to bring about a permanent change in the education sector along with global and local learning habits. With the new policy implemented by the government, the immediate future looks shady for the students and industries looking for fresh talents.
Trade schools too are not out of this impact despite of still growing demands for trade skilled workers (According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for welders, cutters, and brazers is rising at 6%). This has already exaggerated the issue of Demand and supply.
Schools and Colleges don’t intend to open soon and have canceled or suspended classes in this quarter due to coronavirus concerns. Even students are somewhat hesitant about coming to classes. So what can be done to make sure that trade workers are not in shortage and the industries are ready to bounce back in the last quarter of 2020?
Philadelphia Technician Training Institute is one school that has been able to marry both online and hands-on training in perfect harmony to assist the students to learn and adhere to the social distancing. PTTI is leaving no stone unturned to adhere to its ethos of making lives one at a time “Hell we can focus even more on individual student now”.
Coming close to the end of the 3rd quarter – experts suggest that the last quarter could be a sigh of relief for the education industry as the impact of Covid-19 and along with the movement of Black Lives Matter would mellow down and processes would be put in place.
We at PTTI are ready to push the paddle and believe the same for the entire education fraternity. Philadelphia Technician Training Institute is enrolling for all programs! Please inquire about your free tablet for class when you speak with our admissions representative.
