By 2020, more than 60 percent of Georgia jobs will require some form of postsecondary education or training. That information from the governor’s office is the basis of a recently developed task force by University of North Georgia leaders with the purpose of bringing together other significant players in education, regional businesses and communities. In its infancy, the North Georgia Regional Economic and Education Development Task Force is in the process of collecting information and ideas in an effort to increase the number of area residents who have some form of postsecondary education, whether it’s certification, a two-year degree or a more traditional four-year diploma.
