Our rapidly changing economy demands a renewed national focus on building talent to help Americans secure family-supporting careers. In order to meet the coming challenge, our education and workforce systems must be reformed. However these reforms can only be brought to scale by both the Federal government and state governments working in concert. This proposal outlines what reforms are needed, and how the Federal and State governments can work together in this effort.
The stakes are high for programs and policies that look to transform our systems of working and learning. You need to ask the right questions, collect the right data, and make the right analyses to know what works and what to do. JFF’s Research & Analytics Unit combines deep field knowledge with rigorous and systematic inquiry to create strong evidence that can be put into action.
