Better Education Means Better Jobs

Recently at an economic forum some interesting points were made:

The governor also talked about the state’s graduation rates and the need for more work-force training. High school graduation rates, Barbour said, might improve if students were directed to career paths early in high school.More education, generally, translates into people with better paying jobs with more disposable income that would translate into increased tax collections.

You would think that if that was the attitude that the governor and the legislature would be gung-ho on educational bills, right?
