The world in which we live has become increasingly complex and interconnected. Advances in technology, science, and communication are occurring at an unprecedented pace. Our children, and the generations of children to follow, will need far more knowledge and skill than ever before to make sense of the world around them, to make reasoned judgments about their lives, and to contribute to society. The extent to which they develop the knowledge and the skills they need will heavily impact their futures and their ability to earn a wage adequate to support a family.
A highly skilled, technologically literate workforce is essential to growing new jobs in business and industry, generating increased personal income, and creating an overall better quality of life for all Hoosiers. Now more than ever, Indiana’s economic vitality depends on an educated workforce.
Success will only be realized if Indiana’s entire education system from pre-kindergarten through college completion and beyond are aligned to prepare and to enable all students to achieve at high levels.
