That starts with an ambitious goal: ensuring that by 2030,
2 million North Carolinians have a high-quality credential
or a postsecondary degree.
On February 6, myFutureNC hosted the Virtual State of Educational Attainment in North Carolina to share the top findings from the North Carolina’s State of Educational Attainment Report and proposed solutions to address the state of emergency around workforce talent and the education pipeline in NC. We highlighted success stories and forecasted needs and clear solutions to help us achieve the state’s educational attainment goal of 2 million degrees or industry-valued credentials by 2030 among North Carolinians ages 25-44.Watch the Recording
As our economy grows, the vast majority of new jobs require more than a high school diploma—something that less than half of North Carolinians ages 25-44, and even fewer from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, currently have.
The way forward.
Stay in touch, and help champion success for our state and all of its people.
