Education & Workforce Committee

Business Roundtable’s Education & Workforce Committee works to create a stronger, highly-skilled American workforce through modernized education policies and partnerships between businesses and public institutions

Specifically, we work toward:

  • Ensuring all students and workers are prepared to work and ready to succeed.
  • Providing rigorous academic standards in K-12 English language arts and mathematics so that all students graduate ready for college and the workforce.
  • Raising the performance of U.S. students to ensure that all students read on grade level by the end of the third grade.
  • Advocating for federal legislation that authorizes programs and policies that improve educational outcomes and help close the skills gap.
