Education and Workforce Training

A well-educated, highly skilled workforce may be the most important ingredient to strengthen our economy and ensure a high quality of life in our region. Education not only builds a skilled workforce, it also provides social, civic, and personal development. Creating skilled workers for an economy that is constantly changing will require strategic investments, better education, and workforce development programs, which must be coordinated and aligned with employers' needs.

How I plan to continue to improve education and workforce training:

 1) I will ensure curriculum, teacher certification, and infrastructure are state of the art.

 2) I will engage and establish trade-schools and workforce development organizations to serve alternative learning students. Not all students seek university learning and there has been a de-emphasis in technical skills.

 3) I will engage research institutes, employers, and others stakeholders in developing skill determination for current and future workforce.
