Washington, DC, -  The Manufacturing Institute has officially partnered with the Educational Research Center of America (ERCA) as a part of their student research initiative. The objective of this research initiative is to publish an annual research report that will inspire parents, educators and counselors to establish a dynamic dialog with students on their choice of career pathways.  The research will explore students’ aspirations toward a range of Skilled and Technical Careers and some of the influences on those aspirations.

The Institute joins SkillsUSA, the lead partner of the research consortium, and will aid in the development of the research as well as the distribution and promotion of the final report. ERCA is a not-for-profit research organization committed to helping high school students and their families consider all of their future options, including community colleges, four-year institutions, vocational opportunities, and career choices.
