FOR INDUSTRY WATCHERS: (TDH's continuing series of industry shake-ups)

TDH EDITOR'S NOTE:  Excellent commentary.  I've been talking about this for a long time.  As a former adjunct professor I've lamented the fact that schools are a business and therefore need to keep admitting more and more students to make money but they do little to prepare students for the lack of jobs available when they graduate.  It gets even harder as you move up the ladder.  The pyramid gets totally choked around the 7-8 year mark.  Many schools operate on a very dated business model.  A more forward-thinking approach would be to re-structure curriculum to create new paths for the industry via technology, manufacturing, re-cylcing, etc.  This takes time, especially when you need to hire professors who can teach these subjects.
