Education & Workforce Advocacy
Guiding Principle: We need a fully funded education system from pre-kindergarten to post-college job training so we can train workers for 21st century jobs. We also need to challenge the status quo and look at innovative ways to expand the workforce from within.
2017 Agenda Items:
- EFA funding: We urge the General Assembly to fully fund the Education Finance Act, and will support efforts to reduce the gap between the amount required by state law and what is actually funded.
- Expungement: We support the expansion of expungement for one-time, non-violent offenders to expand our workforce.
