Education plays a crucial role in Wisconsin’s future. Nationally, Wisconsin is recognized for its long tradition of great education. In recent years, the role of our state’s education system – from the elementary through college levels – has expanded to meet the needs of both students and businesses.
Universities and technical college systems here have established collaborative working relationships with other educational institutions, community organizations and businesses to address specifically what businesses need from the state’s future workforce.
Stakeholders across the state have been brought together to discuss the roles everyone can play in addressing the skills gap, the production of an employable workforce and how to benefit Wisconsin’s economy as a whole.
