Creating Georgia’s Evidence-Based Literacy Ecosystem
The pace of automation and the switch to high-tech jobs is accelerating. 60% of jobs are STEM related, and 60% of those job holders do not need a bachelor’s degree. Georgia needs a literate workforce that can up-skill, re-skill, and grow the skilled workforce as the economy changes.
During the past year, Science for Georgia led discussions in creating greater awareness of the impact poor literacy has on Georgia’s economic development, especially as it comes to technical fields. Last summer we lead a 4-part speaker series and follow-on roundtable.
This series of events helped influence the Georgia House to pass HR650, to create a Literacy Study Committee.
Science for Georgia needs your help to keep the momentum going.
