Pennsylvania governor removes college degree requirement for most state jobs on first full day in office
College campuses ‘completely desensitized’ to surveillance, censorship: Evita Duffy
The Federalist staff writer Evita Duffy reacts to some U.S. colleges banning TikTok from campus Wi-Fi on ‘Varney & Co.’
Just one day after being sworn in as the governor of Pennsylvania, Josh Shapiro signed an executive order getting rid of four-year college degree requirements for most state jobs.
"In Pennsylvania the people should decide what path is best for them, not have it decided by some arbitrary requirement or any arbitrary limitation. There are many different pathways to success, whether it's through on-the-job training, an apprenticeship, vocational education, or college," Shapiro said before signing the executive order.
"Degree requirements that reward folks who pursue one of thees paths, while shutting out those who pursue others, hurts us all."
