Bob Gliner documentary airs on SF Bay Area PBS stations

Many economists, business owners, and labor leaders have raised alarm about a rising skills gap in the United States between the jobs that are available and those with the skills needed to fill them. Job Centered Learning, a new film from retired Sociology Professor Bob Gliner, takes a critical look at the wide range of career education some high schools are offering as a way of both closing this gap as well as making education more meaningful and relevant for students.

The film, which features many local area schools, comes to PBS stations in the SF Bay Area this week as part of its nationwide airings including Thursday, Aug. 17 at 7 PM on KQED Life (Comcast 189), Sunday, Aug. 20, at 9 PM on KCSM (Comcast 17 and 717HD) and Thursday, Aug. 24, at 8 PM on KRCB (Comcast 22 and 722 HD SF and North Bay Counties, Comcast 200 in Silicon Valley).
