Our most challenging problem . . . our ECONOMIC FUTURE!
Ensuring economic growth is the most important issue confronting national and state leaders today. The reality is that most states are struggling to maintain positive growth and economic ranking compared to other states. But the problem doesn’t end at our borders. This struggle will continue because of our decline in international competitiveness.
Many visionary leaders recognize the underlying root cause: declining availability of a quality and aligned skilled workforce that meets industry’s needs for future U.S. growth. Get the full story about America’s #1 Problem here.
State legislators have a responsibility to increase their state’s GSP. When state growth declines, a downward spiral begins. That decline is rooted in a huge misalignment between employer needs and the number of available skilled workers.
Lower state revenues begin a downward spiral that reduces education and public service funding, produces fewer skilled graduates, lowers per-capita incomes, increases tax burdens, and eventually forces an industry exodus from the state.
State legislators want to know about the best vetted and recommended digital learning products that can solve their education problems.
