The El Paso County Republican Party is partnering with the Business and Education Talent Readiness Project (www.betrproject.org) to help solve a problem reported in the U.S. Dept of Education’s 2006 Spellings Report which found unacceptable numbers of college graduates enter the workforce without the skills employers say they need. BETR forges an alliance between educators, businesses, school districts, post-secondary institutions, local government agencies, Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development Departments, students and families, and workforce centers to address this problem. The objective is to bring educators and students into actual places of business. Executives and managers demonstrate to educators the skills necessary to successfully compete in a global economy. Teachers and educators then take this new knowledge back to improve the curriculum to address these gaps. The EPCRP is providing the opportunity for its members to participate in the BETR Project by inviting businesses to bring educators to their business to demonstrate the skills needed and not being found in graduates. Additionally, business leaders may participate as speakers to students in the classroom. Teachers and educators can sign up to visit businesses. Teachers and Businesses interested in learning how they can participate should contact BOB SHIRILLA OF THE EPC GOP at 719-390-8992 or email@example.com
