Next Generation Education Reform: Joelle Phillips
As part of its State Pathways to Prosperity initiative, CSG released a report in August that outlines recommendations for state-level policies to ensure students are prepared for postsecondary education and the workforce. The report, “A Framework for State Policymakers: Developing Pathways to Ensure a Skilled Workforce for State Prosperity,” containing the work of the CSG National Task Force on Workforce Development and Education, represents more than a year of study, dialogue and deliberation by state officials from both parties, all regions of the U.S. and from diverse perspectives. This session featured some of the experts and policymakers who dedicated their time to crafting these options for robust state-level policies and explored how states are preparing today’s students for the jobs of tomorrow.
