The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education is gearing up to co-host our "Closing the Widening Gaps" Critical Issues Forum with the Georgia Chamber of Commerce next Thursday, September 17 at 1:30 p.m. EST. If you haven''t already registered, please do so and join us via Vimeo Live to learn how the COVID-19 pandemic and the related economic collapse have challenged our workforce pipeline and how we, Georgia, should respond.
Our keynote speaker, Anthony Carnevale (Director, Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce) will be outlining the systemic changes that must be made to meet the changing workforce landscape, particularly the alignment of K-12, post-secondary systems, and the business community as well as structural changes to who has access to post-secondary degrees.
He will be followed by two panels, one exploring the implications for the workforce and the other exploring the role of public education.
