Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on the Senate Task Force on Workforce Development Report

“The business community endorses the focus on expanded funding for Career and Technical Education Programs by the Senate Task Force, especially with respect to the employer-led models like P-Tech and early college high schools. Today, most jobs require skills beyond those gained with a four-year high school degree. New York has piloted some of the most successful programs to deliver advanced training and work experience, but as this report suggests, they must be institutionalized in state law and scaled up in order to ensure economic opportunity for New York’s students.”
