College for More; Skills for All When a greater percentage of people in a region attain a college degree, the region grows and prospers. People who earn college degrees generally make more money than those who don't and are less likely to be unemployed. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll add to the ongoing community-wide discussion about creating a college-going culture here and throughout the state. And we'll talk about how to match what's taught to the skills employers need. Tuesday at 9:00 a.m.
