It’s a Wednesday night and York High School students fill the classrooms. They are adults who are returning to school to take computer and technology courses to beef up their job skills or to find a new career. Adult demand for General Education Diplomas and college degrees, as well as courses in Excel, Microsoft Office and other technology is increasing, according to Katie Schindler, director of York Adult Education. “There’s a huge increase in demand across the state,” Schindler told the York Budget Committee earlier this month. “A lot of adults are lacking those skills essential to getting those 21st century jobs.” “The enrichment program is definitely seeing an increase in technology and computer classes,” Schindler said. “They tend to fill up quickly.”
