Video: Schools as Epicenters of Our Economic Recovery
After the devastation COVID-19 has done to the American economy, many of us don’t know how we can help. The simple truth is that now as always, there is a direct and immediate relationship between education and the economy. As the recovery begins, schools are finding themselves at ground zero in the economic recovery efforts. Their importance is crucial, and this Learning Counsel virtual discussion will help you and your team to stand on the front lines, as schools become the epicenters of our economic response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to LeiLani Cauthen, CEO and Publisher of the Learning Counsel, “Not everything needs a college degree. There are people who may understand how to use Microsoft Office or they are in sales and related, or they receive systems training once they’re on the job. Food prep and serving is where we’ve lost the majority of our jobs. So far, very little has been lost in transportation or materials movements, a little bit in manufacturing production, and almost none in the education sector, which is one of the big six in terms of size of employment. There are areas of work that are unique. So that leads us to the assumption that if you look at the entire list at the federal database of available jobs, there is a lot of not understanding what careers are actually out there.”
