Too often, schools send their students off poorly equipped for adult life due to a misalignment between what the school is teaching and what skills or knowledge are needed to succeed in adult life. Parents want their children to be equipped for success in life, so they are actively seeking educational pathways that will help their children have the best shot at a bright future. By connecting schools with local leaders and business owners, we will be better able to align what’s being learned in school with what’s needed in adult life. Glenn Hamer and Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker join us to talk about the connection between improving workforce quality in Texas and increasing educational freedom and opportunities for all Texans.
