Obama touts job training

In his State of the Union speech, President Obama pledged to encourage job training partnerships between community colleges and employers and expand apprenticeships. Neither is a new idea.

He also said he’d simplify federal job training programs — that was Mitt Romney’s proposal — and create a web site so job seekers would “have one program, one web site and one place to go for all the information and help they need.” (Let’s hope they hire a better web designer this time around.)
