STATEHOUSE—The following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) was issued in response to Governor Pence’s announcement of the Center for Education and Career Innovation:
“I fully support Governor Pence’s announcement of the Center for Education and Career Innovation (CECI). Like the Indiana Career Council, the CECI works to break down barriers and better coordinate our state’s resources. By enabling the state to align K-12, higher education and our workforce development resources, we will be better equipped to develop the skill sets Hoosier students need to thrive in tomorrow’s economy.
“With nearly one-third of the state’s workforce lacking the necessary skills to succeed in our economy, we must continue to focus our resources on solutions that seek to provide Hoosiers with the tools they need to succeed in our globally dynamic marketplace. The CECI is a great step in that direction.”
