In long run, well-educated workforce is preferable to well-trained

With regard to the article “Firms call for tech classes” (Page A1, June 11): Business executives must acknowledge that a well-trained workforce with limited education may serve the short-term interests of employers. But a well-educated workforce ready to be trained serves the long-term interests of democracy.
