BRIEFING EVENTS

Hear Ohio's Case for Investing Early in Our Future Workforce. Did You Know...

 Only 40% of Ohio children enter kindergarten ready to learn? This results in only 43% of our adult workforce having a post-secondary degree or credential qualifying them for an available job. By 2020, more than 65% of available jobs will require more than a high school diploma and Ohio is not on track to meet this workforce demand.  This is why the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and our Ohio business community care about the indisputable connection between kindergarten readiness and career readiness.

 

In 2018, Groundwork Ohio worked with partners across the state to host a series of briefings for business leaders in Cincinnati, Dayton, Cleveland, Akron, Columbus, and Athens.  These briefings were centered around the important work of Dr. Katharine Stevens, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.  Dr. Stevens' recent publication, "Workforce of Today, Workforce of Tomorrow: The Business Case for High-Quality Childcare" outlines the business case for quality early child care and education.

 

At each briefing, local business communities came together to talk about the importance of recognizing quality early childhood education as an investment in Ohio's future workforce.  The workforce of today needs childcare and the workforce of tomorrow is in childcare--and our business community can take the first step in making quality early childhood education a priority in Ohio.

"Business leaders have long understood the importance of a well-educated workforce to support a strong economy, keep America competitive globally, and ensure a vibrant democracy. Yet our nation’s K–12 system is falling short in preparing new generations for the ever-changing demands of the 21st century workplace."
