New NGA Chair Announces Yearlong Initiative:

  • Engaging education, business and government leaders in a dialogue about what governors can do to more closely align K-12, universities, community and technical colleges and workforce training providers with future labor demands; and
  • Supporting governors and their staff in using data and information to identify states’ future labor demands, prioritize changes in state education and workforce training systems to meet those demands and take action to achieve desired results.
