-  Today, The Manufacturing Institute released a new report “State Responses to the Skills Gap: Successful Policies Advancing Industry Credentials and Manufacturing Education.” The report details how state education policies play a significant role in enabling students to acquire work-ready skills.

The report covers a variety of state policies on industry credentials at the secondary and postsecondary levels, industry partnerships to better align curriculum and work-based learning opportunities, credit articulation, dual enrollment, and comprehensive state strategies. This report illustrates that a manufacturing sector requires a cohesive workforce development strategy involving public and private interests to build a pipeline of skilled workers. Eliminating barriers and providing incentives for institutions and companies to assist students in the acquisition of those skills should be the goal of state policymakers.
