Bye: Strong STEM education is key to solving the workforce shortage

Inforum – Danita Bye

“We can only grow the workforce by keeping our own young adults and through attracting new, largely young adults to our state. To accomplish either, we must be intentional and strategic in many of our public investments and efforts. This includes our education system at the primary, secondary and post-secondary levels. To achieve our best prospects, a strong basis in science, technology, and math (STEM) is needed. This holds true whatever a student pursues from the trades to doctoral programs. The best jobs of the future will be in the advanced trades and in engineering/computer science fields. Farming and ranching will become even more precision-oriented, depending on technology to increase production and competitiveness. All required strong STEM programs.”(more)
