Education and Economic Vitality

Filed under Community Interest, Economy on May 23, 2012

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce had some stiff criticism for the Seattle Public Schools. Instead of defending itself, I hope the School Board takes it to heart and makes some changes. A solid educational system is essential to produce the employees of tomorrow. The Seattle economy is dependent upon aerospace, software and increasingly biotech. The last time I checked, these industries required a well educated/trained workforce. The economic vitality of the region is at the mercy of Seattle Public Schools.

Chamber to School Board: You’re dysfunctional
