Adapting in Education

On the front lines of region’s the economic recovery, community colleges have worked to quickly adapt to a surge in enrollment as adults leaving the workforce went back to school. At the same time, curricula has been revamped to meet changing technology and the skills gap identified by employers in the Carolinas. On this program, North Carolina Community College System President Dr. Scott Ralls discusses the work of integrating business certifications into high learning while aligning a two-year degree track with the state’s public schools.  Sue Breckenridge of the North Carolina Business Committee for Education  and Jim Reynolds of the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce join the dialogue.
