myFutureNC Commission Listening Session on Education and Economic Opportunity

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Educational attainment is critical to North Carolina’s continued economic growth. To earn a family-sustaining wage in today’s economy, North Carolinians need some postsecondary education – whether that’s a four-year degree, an associate’s degree, a certificate or license in a career and technical field, or an apprenticeship. The myFutureNC Commission – comprised of state leaders in education, business, philanthropy, government, and faith-based and nonprofit communities – is reimagining the ways our communities, our regions, and our state support an individual’s attainment journey, from pre-Kindergarten through postsecondary and into the workforce. To help them in this task, the myFutureNC Listening Tour is collecting ideas and feedback from people all over the state. We want to hear from everyone: educators, parents, service providers, faith leaders, employees, employers, government representatives, and students.
