Improving the Education Attainment Level of All Kentuckians
Kentucky’s economic well-being is inextricably linked to the education and skills of its citizens. The relationship between educational excellence and economic growth is more critical today than it has ever been. In our modern economy, competition comes from nations on the other side of the world, not just from our neighboring states.
Kentucky must be focused and relentless in its work to create a system of education that is truly world class. All Kentuckians have a role to play, none more important than the state’s business community.
It is the state’s employers who face competition every day and who understand the limitations created by an under-educated workforce.
