There has been an ongoing shift to remote learning that has only been exasperated since the pandemic. Some mainstay institutions have shut down due to the decay in our local educational system. A choice has to be made between paying for formal education or going a less typical route of learning. And learning a trade may be a better option that allows people to have a career without the baggage of student debt.
