Are business owners working together and communicating with the high schools so the right kind of training for local jobs gets developed? There has been some discussion of a new LRTC satellite center. Would there be more programs developed to serve both communities?
Our Commission did not have the expertise to dig into curricula. At noted above, that is best left to professional educators, of whom the two cities have in abundance. Looking at a very high level, we did discuss the importance of aligning education offerings with the job needs of the future. LRTC is very highly regarded, and we recognized importance and opportunity to expand its offerings to include more Auburn-side students.
