Ohio's 65 by 2025 Attainment Goal
At an Education and Workforce Development event held at the State Capitol, featured speakers State Senator Peggy Lehner and Stanford University Economist Eric Hanushek assessed the state of Ohio's workforce and looked to future needs.
Goal: By 2025, 65% of Ohio's workforce will have a 2-year, 4-year, or certified marketable skill.
There is important work ahead for our state given that today only 44% of Ohioans have reached one or more of these skill levels. Also notable is Ohio's rank as 33rd in the nation in educational attainment.
