When it comes to public policy, President Barack Obama and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence are kilometers apart in their thinking, but both have found something “wunderbar” in the way Germans have engineered vocational education.
Obama praised it in his last State of the Union speech, when he pledged to create a new federal funding stream to provide the nation’s high school students with technical education to help them prepare for the workforce.
Pence praised it in his welcoming remarks at a luncheon for the German ambassador to the U.S. recently, when he pledged to do more to provide Indiana’s high school students with technical education to help them prepare for the workforce.
