The Impact of Education on Workplace Success

November 16, 2015

“The strength of the next generation is going to define how our businesses compete, how our communities look, and the strength of our cities…what the business community needs to do is be engaged…to ensure new ways that every child has the opportunity for a productive life.”

“Recognizing that educating our children for opportunity is probably our single most important responsibility. And failure to do that really has enormous costs for individuals, for families, and our economy.”

“We want our young people put in the best position to have productive lives, and I think that in some cases we are failing.”
