State Looks To Help Adults Get Postsecondary Credentials

Missouri has laid out a plan that aims to help 150-thousand adults earn a postsecondary credential by 2030. Samantha Dickey works for the Missouri Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development. She says the state’s goal is to have 60 percent of working-aged Missourians earn a credential and have 70 percent of residents employed.

Dickey says leveraging the Fast Track financial aid program and targeting Missouri’s 23 job centers will help to reach this goal, along with further involving inmates who leave prison.
