Charleston Chamber Calls for More Secondary Technology Education


Thursday - April 17, 2014 at 7:52 am



Since 2007, the population of the tri-county area around Charleston, South Carolina has grown by almost twice the rate of the national average.  And over the next five years, employment growth is expected to increase by almost 50%.  Our next guest's organization says this is good news, but that there is a dark side: that in fact there exists a dangerously wide gap between the college degrees available from local institutions, and the degrees needed by local employers.

Mike Switzer interviews Laura Varn, a volunteer with the "Degrees of Change" initiative at the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce.
