The Education & Workforce Development Committee will convene at 9:15a.m.-12:00p.m. Saturday, August 19th during the Annual Meeting. This year’s Committee meeting offers something for everyone. We will begin with a discussion about what it takes to provide students with a “world-class education.” Next, the committee will examine where and why teacher shortages exist, and we’ll look at some creative solutions. Third, we’ll hear from a national expert and one of our own members about regional approaches to workforce development, including work-based learning, apprenticeships and “stackable credentials.” We will conclude, as always, with state reports.
