(This amendment provides operating funds for UMW's Workforce Development Initiative, which proposes to eliminate some of the inefficiencies inherent in a stratified system of education by creating college degree pathways that begin in high school and end with a job and a degree that offers the promise of future social mobility. The initiative partners three K-12 school districts, a community college, a public liberal arts university, and industry to develop a curriculum that reduces time to degree (by as much as two years to save two years of costs to both the student and the Commonwealth), lowers cost of attendance, eliminates the skills gap that exists between educational experiences and work, reduces the reliance in student loan debt, and produces career-ready graduates. The initiative will initially focus on nursing (healthcare) and teaching (education).)
