Education Matters is a regional undertaking organized by the community foundations that serve Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington counties to increase the number of working adults who have a degree or vocational certificate.
In Southeast Indiana, only 25% of our workforce has an associate’s, bachelors or professional degree, compared to 33 % in the state and 38% nationally. Yet one in four of our community’s adult workers has earned some college credits! That’s over 40,000 people in this region! For whatever reason, they started but never completed their post-secondary education.
The community foundations are uniting business, political, education, and community leaders to identify ways to increase the educational attainment numbers in Southern Indiana. Contact us if you would like to be a part of the solution.
