According to a Tennessean article shared by WBIR:
"There's a perception out there that if you don't go to college, you're a failure," said Mark Lenz, director of the Tennessee Technology Center in Nashville. "There are jobs out there that require skills, not degrees. If you get an associate's (degree) and can't do anything with it, what good is it?"
Is this the norm for most states (i.e. 80% of jobs do not require college degrees)?
