Date Posted: Friday, January 2nd, 2015
As we enter 2015, the goals for our state remain the same: to ensure everyone who wants a job can get one, and to give all Delawareans the chance to reach their potential.
The vast majority of good-paying jobs require education or training beyond high school. So we must take note of clear evidence showing that students who take a college course in high school have more success in post-secondary education. It’s why we are working with our school districts and colleges to make more of these classes available and, earlier this year, we committed to ensuring no student will be denied the chance to take a college course because of the cost.
Governor Markell discusses the importance of challenging our students in the classroom and highlights the statewide increase in dual enrollment courses to better prepare students for college.
Joined by a dozen Delaware business leaders, Governor Markell spoke with Ambassador Dr. S. Jaishankar on the future of India-Delaware relations at a breakfast reception organized by the Delaware Economic Development Office and the World Trade Center Delaware.
