Text SHARON to 20406


From healthcare companies to technology companies, whether they are large corporations or family-owned businesses, everyone is struggling to find people who want to work.  Our workforce participation rate in Louisiana is one of the lowest in the country.  For Louisiana’s economy to thrive and for us to put Louisiana citizens to work in high paying jobs, we need to build the skilled workforce that our current and future employers need. 

Today’s students want more flexibility and innovation in their high school, community and technical college, and university offerings that are responsive to today’s quickly-evolving job market through dual-enrollment, apprenticeships, and industry-based certifications while in high school.  As Governor, I will continue to champion TOPS, TOPS Tech, and the Foster Promise Program because today’s students do not fit the one-size-fits-all model.  Let’s stop the brain-drain and give our students and young adults a reason to stay in Louisiana, with multiple pathways to success.
