    Building a career - Toronto Star,  Canada
    Increasingly trades are appealing to a broader range of students, said John Carvalho, who started working construction 29 years ago and has taught at the centre for the last four years.

    Many times students who aren't motivated in a classroom "are superstars here," he said. "Some of them aren't cut out for school but they're excellent masons and carpenters."

    The union and the Ontario government are working with schools to change the image of trades to the 60 per cent of high school graduates who won't go on to university.
