Speaker says education, job skills produce higher pay
Tennessee Education Commissioner Candice McQueen says learning a trade skill is a way to higher earning power.
Tennessee Commissioner of Education Candice McQueen projected a bright economic future for the state and Warren County while she praised local business and school leaders Tuesday. Higher-paying, more secure jobs will result from both traditional education and skills training, Dr. McQueen emphasized in her remarks at a Partners in Education luncheon in the fellowship hall of Central Church of Christ.“Some communities are moving ahead of others by investing in human capital,” McQueen said. Thanks to a strong relationship between the private sector and schools, Warren County is a conspicuous example of the progress such partnerships can energize, she affirmed.
