Earlier today Del. Kris Amundson announced that she will be starting a new job next week as the communications director for Education Sector. In addition to saying their motto of "Independent Analysis, Innovative Ideas" is part of what attracted her to the organization, she pointed out that she believes education will be a big part of the discussions heading forward.
I have to agree because it is through education that people will be prepared for the 21st Century job market. In other words, investing in education and setting sound education policy will have a very big impact our country's ability to get through the tough economic times that we are currently facing. I therefore wish Kris nothing but the best in her new job and look forward to doing what I can to help the organization promote productive policies surrounding education.
