    training is preparing someone to do something specific very well; education is preparing someone for coming to terms with an uncertain world.

    Working for a large vocational education and training organization, I can only concur that companies should be doing the training that they need for their employees, but it is much more cost effective to defer these costs to the individual. It's not just a matter of shifting priorities, it's a matter of shifting responsibility and ultimately blame.

    BTW, I live and work in Germany ... this is by no means just a US-domestic problem. The key word used here: employability (which quite frankly makes my hair stand on end).
