2024 MLC Education & Workforce Development Committee Meeting



In conjunction with the 78th Annual Meeting of the Midwestern Legislative Conference (MLC), the MLC Education & Workforce Development Committee will hold its 2024 Meeting on Sunday, July 21, in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to traditional committee business, this meeting will include a) a presentation on work being done in the host state of Ohio to strengthen and integrate state policy on education and workforce development through a recent legislative-initiated restructuring of the state education agency, and b) a presentation on a pedagogical method to literacy education that is based on cognitive science that now has been adopted by a majority of Midwestern states.

The committee will also host a committee-sponsored session on Tuesday, July 23, that will explore state policies to better help students in need of academic remediation as they transition from high school to college, as well as prevention strategies to help students prior to graduation from high school.
