More than 25 education leaders from across the country have been named charter members of the first-ever Education Council focused on expanding and enhancing the manufacturing workforce.

"In these difficult economic times, we must create new educational pathways to help more individuals prepare for high-paying manufacturing jobs and, in turn, help our companies compete in world markets," said Emily DeRocco, president of The Manufacturing Institute and former U.S. assistant secretary of labor for employment and training.

The Education Council will provide leadership, counsel and research to ensure America’s manufacturing workforce is properly prepared to compete in the global economy. Charter members will focus on issues as wide-ranging as identifying solutions to address the adult literacy crisis, designing regional manufacturing talent development systems, creating 21st century career and technical education programs and advancing innovation in the manufacturing economy.

Representing K-12, community and technical colleges and 4-year colleges and universities, the educators and officials were tapped by The Manufacturing Institute to assist in developing national strategies to keep the American manufacturing workforce globally competitive and create more high-paying jobs. The Manufacturing Institute is the research, education and workforce arm of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).
