Economists all agree: Investing in education leads to higher wages, a stronger economy, and a more engaged citizenry. The ideal educational track begins at birth and continues into adulthood. Then why is Montpelier always fighting about education spending? This workshop explores the intersection between investments in education and workforce development and look at the whole system, including our child care system, public schools, and postsecondary degrees and credentials of value.
