SLATE | There is widespread agreement among labor economists that workers need access to continuous education to stay one step ahead of rising automation.
“…for people who are not adept or who left school short of a credential, it’s going to be a serious problem to try to figure out what they need in terms of education and training, when they need it, and where to get it.” said Michelle Weise, chief innovation officer of the Strada Institute for the Future of Work.
Not since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution in the 18th and 19th centuries and the Information Age that followed in the last century has the scale of disruption taking place in the workforce been so evident.
Now a third wave in education and training has arrived, argue economists, educators, and workforce-development officials.
Wells Fargo Foundation has awarded $75,000 to Emily Griffith Foundation to continue its support of the innovative 360 Degree Fund at Emily Griffith Technical College for the 2018-2019 school year.
The 360 Degree Fund provides emergency stipends to students faced with unexpected non-academic expenses, such as childcare, emergency car repairs or medical bills, which might otherwise force the student to drop out of a program.
