Students should learn trades

William Lewis’ opinion that the mayor and the city schools chancellor should concentrate on trade school courses for high schools in the city is right on.

The high school programs should be modeled after private trade schools, like the Refrigeration Institute or Apex Tech, that get students ready for $15-plus-per-hour jobs after six to eight months of four-hour-a-day training.

Many of the trade school grads have ready union jobs waiting for their skill sets that can catapult them toward the middle class.
