Career Tech: The Brain Drain Antidote

Career Tech: The Brain Drain Antidote

Rural brain drain is just as much about those left behind in small-town America as it is about those who leave. Local industries and social capital suffer when “the best and the brightest” are forced to leave Main Street for metropolises. This session will touch on how career and technical education can act as a direct antidote to brain drain by providing more relevant educational opportunities that encourage students to stay and which better serves the industries that hope to hire them.
