Wyoming Works: tech education to enable nimble workforce

Over the course of the last couple of years Wyoming, like a lot of states, is suffering from a lack of a skilled workforce. Education is changing. Our economy is changing. Today, more than ever we need to provide the educational opportunities to enable a nimble workforce to find a job with companies right here in Wyoming.

That is why I support a suite of proposals including Wyoming Works, which promise new ways for high school students and even adults to continue their technical education and this would also stand up career and technical education programs in our community colleges. I believe Wyoming should create a new Trust Fund under the Amendment A provision, with private industry's support and a Wyoming match, would offer scholarships for Career and Technical Education. I look forward to making Wyoming Works a reality. I applaud those bills that would help Wyoming students move more seamlessly from high school to college and from community colleges to the University of Wyoming.

Focus on efficiency studies; ensure teachers are well paid

Touching on education, Gordon said the state needs to focus more on efficiency studies. "We want to make sure we have well paid teachers - that is one of the big draws for Wyoming and one of the big enhancements of why it is such a great place to raise your family here," he said. "But when we get the block grants to the district, the district's job is to do their best to make sure they negotiate the salaries with their teachers."
