Washington students have big dreams for their futures. But too few Washington students are prepared to compete in our state’s workforce. Some 740,000 jobs are expected to open in Washington by 2021, most of which will require at least some postsecondary education or training. Yet, only 40% of Washington high school students go on to earn a credential after high school, and only 51% of all Washingtonians have a postsecondary credential.
The College Promise Coalition brings together leaders and advocates from education, business, labor and community-based organizations to open up diverse pathways for Washington students to pursue the unique opportunities in our state. We advocate for opportunity and access to education and training after high school for all Washington students.
We want to know what you think! This is the second survey we are releasing in a series, to connect with you.
