Mind the (Skills) Gap

Make more higher education certification-focused. Instead of spending years in the classroom to learn an entire subject, give students and workers access to ad hoc courses and certifications. This will shorten the educational time commitment, thereby lengthening the time an individual has to actually master the skill on the job.
