Two out of three jobs now demand at least some education or training, confirms new research from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, in partnership with JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Automation, globalization and “upskilling” have prompted massive economic restructuring, but three pathways to good jobs still remain: a high school education, middle-skills training or education, and a four-year college degree.
