Our public schools are at a crossroads. Good schools attract people and strengthen a community. We need to develop careers. Education, reducing barriers and fostering innovative business approaches are key
Foster quality public education for a better prepared future workforce
(Example: strengthen science, technology, engineering and mathematic curriculum to prepare our students for future workforce needs.)
Reduce barriers to employment
(Example:Expand technical skills taught at high school or post-secondary level so that we have a world-class workforce that is as essential in manufacturing as it is useful in developing innovative business practices.
Example: Explore more flexible approaches to certification for the trades industry)
Strengthen and promote economic development through Made-In-Maine manufacturing
