Why do education and high expectations matter to Washington parents?
Washington state is expected to have 740,000 job openings by 2021.
Today, less than a third of Washington’s students earn a credential after high school that they will need to get a good job.
Partnership for Learning is leading the conversation about policy actions and implementation that will enable more Washington youth to successfully pursue careers and opportunities in their home state.
