A new report [1] from the smart folks at NC Budget and Tax Center provides more reasons not to cut post-secondary education:

“RALEIGH (Aug. 16, 2011) – Credentials, or sub-baccalaureate certificates, help improve skill levels of North Carolina workers while also providing a boost to workers’ incomes and the economy at large, a new study [2] finds.

North Carolina’s workforce will require higher educational levels and skills training in the future, a study released this morning by the NC Budget and Tax Center [2] finds, and it is critical that the state maintain its workforce development system in order to deliver this training and education to the state’s workers. According to the study, community colleges, Workforce Investment Act programs, and community-based and apprentice programs all play crucial roles in structuring workforce policy and shaping the lives of North Carolina’s workers.”
