Bridging the Employer-Educator Divide
Joseph Fuller, American Enterprise Institute
America’s skills ecosystem is broken. Employers are confounded by workforce development institutions. Middle skills employees can’t get the training they need. Educators aren’t held accountable for outcomes. Now, innovative providers are aligning stakeholders around a common cause: creating a pipeline of workers with 21st century skills.
In this podcast, Frank Britt, CEO of Penn Foster, one of the oldest non-traditional educators in the United States, discusses how the new skills ecosystem must be radically redesigned.
