Recently I attended an excellent Colorado Adult Education conference (CAEPA) in Colorado Springs. There I learned two compelling facts in a session led by Frank Waterous of the Bell Policy Center.
By 2025, 2/3 of all jobs in the U.S. will require some level of post-secondary education or career /technical skills training.
2/3 of all people who will be in our workforce in 2025 are already working age adults today.
What does this mean?
It means that adult education is essential now, and the demand for adult education will only increase in the next 12 years.
