#MASSPchat - Marshall Plan for Talent

The Topic:
On Thursday, February 22nd Governor Rick Snyder along with Lt. Governor Brian Calley and Roger Curtis, the Director of the Department of Talent and Economic Development, unveiled their plans for addressing the industry talent gap in Michigan. This plan has many direct implications for schools K-12 as there is a heavy emphasis on raising career awareness, increasing course offerings and programming at high schools that will directly funnel into the work force, moving toward a competency based model and teaching life long accumulated skills that will allow adaptation to a changing career picture (just to name a few!).

Governor Unveils Marshall Plan for Talent

The Marshall Plan for Talent: big statewide headlines, $100 million in proposed spending, state officials talking about a "revolution" in education and Governor Snyder saying "It’s not your dad’s job anymore, so why is it your grandfather’s school?"

The Governor rolled out his Marshall Plan for Talent in Detroit on Thursday flanked by (among others) Lieutenant Governor Calley and legislative leadership from both the House and Senate. This is the latest in an ongoing series of initiatives out of Lansing focused on making changes to Michigan's education system with an eye toward the needs of employers and the workforce.

So what is the Marshall Plan for Talent?
