Holcomb emphasizes workforce development


INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb made it clear what he sees as the most important issue facing the state.

In last night’s State of the State address, the Republican governor said workforce development is the defining issue of the decade.

He wants to retrain over 55,000 Hoosiers over the next year to help fill 85,000 jobs that go unfilled because employers can’t find skilled workers.

The governor said he wants to require computer science in every school and said the controversial overhaul of Indiana’s graduation requirements is a step in the right direction.
