Governor DeSantis Issued Executive Order to Make Florida #1 in Workforce Education
Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-31, to begin the process of making Florida the number one state in the nation for workforce education as well as ensuring that Florida students are prepared to fill the high-demand, high-wage jobs of today and the future.
“Florida has many students unprepared for college and workforce success, limiting both their career opportunities as well as employers’ ability to grow their business,” said Governor DeSantis. “I am committed to making sure students in Florida are able to acquire the knowledge and learn the skills they need to earn a good wage and provide for their families here in our great state, and that’s why I signed this executive order today.”
Florida is currently ranked 24th in the nation of people age 25-64 with an associate in arts degree or higher or with a high-quality workforce relevant certificate. Through Executive Order 19-31, Governor DeSantis has charted a course for Florida to become number one in the nation in workforce education by 2030 and to provide students the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed in jobs of the 21st century.
