Education

We’re failing our kids: graduates from high school are lacking the basics and entering the workforce unprepared for the 21st century.

It’s hurting their future, and it’s hurting the economy: by 2020, 65% of all jobs in the economy will require post-secondary education and training beyond high school. Even now, employers are struggling to find qualified candidates for vital positions sitting empty.

Business leaders need good schools: to train employees, to attract and retain talent, and for their own children’s future.
