Wolf: Pennsylvania Preparing Youth for Careers of Their Choice, Including in the Military Education,  Press Release,  Schools That Teach,  Workforce Development Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today joined Pennsylvania’s Adjutant General Maj. General Anthony Carrelli, and retired generals and admirals from Mission: Readiness to release the non-profit organization’s workforce readiness report that outlines how competition for qualified individuals among all employment sectors affects military recruiting efforts and warrants greater investment in our next generation.“I am committed to making investments in education at all ages to help ensure we provide Pennsylvanians with the skills needed for every open job and that includes positions with the Pennsylvania National Guard and all branches of the military,” Gov. Wolf said. “These investments start in the earliest years of life, when children are learning soft skills such as teamwork, time management and good communication.”The Mission: Readiness report identifies research-based solutions to improve the health and education of young adults with the goal of making them more likely to successfully contribute to America’s workforce, including military service if they so choose. The report also documents the wins for Pennsylvania’s children that Mission: Readiness members have supported in the areas of early childhood education; equitable and adequate K-12 education funding; and youth fitness and nutrition.“Research is clear that brain development from birth to age 5 sets the foundation for children’s future success,” said Retired Air Force Lieutenant General Ralph Jodice. “High-quality child care and early education programs like pre-k set the stage for readiness by improving children’s cognitive ability, health and behavior throughout life.”Since he took office, Gov. Wolf has invested in the future of Pennsylvania’s youngest residents by:Expanding access to child care and reducing waiting lists with $15 million in federal funds so nearly 1,000 infants and toddlers would have quality care, enabling their families to go to work or school.Enhancing high-quality child care by investing $10 million to incentivize programs to increase their quality ratings through the commonwealth’s STARS program.Increasing the number of children able to attend pre-kindergarten by 60 percent.Fully restoring the $1 billion education cut made during the previous administration that led to teacher layoffs, larger class sizes, and program cuts.Increasing the high school graduation rate to 86.1 percent, placing Pennsylvania above the national average.Increasing the number of career and technical education (CTE) students earning industry-recognized credentials by 34.2 percent and increased the number of credentials earned by students enrolled in CTE programs by 27.2 percent.Providing high school students options to demonstrate graduation readiness as alternatives to standardized testing.Gov. Wolf has worked to advance legislation to ensure children are in school by age 6 and stay until age 18; creating a more skilled and qualified workforce by providing an additional $10 million for PAsmart; establishing the Employer Skills Fund; and launching the Keystone Economic Development and Workforce Command Center to partner with the private sector around workforce development.“We owe it to the men and women currently serving in the Pennsylvania National Guard and all branches of the military to give them the best possible future troops,” Gov. Wolf said. “That means ensuring we’re providing the best education possible to potential enlistees, starting at the earliest ages, when children learn quickly and eagerly.“By working together, we can identify and fill readiness gaps, and ensure we have the best possible workforce for every job – including the Pennsylvania National Guard and all our military branches.”center_img November 12, 2019last_img read more

first_img.Player misses Montpellier duelFemi Solaja with reportsSuper Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr, yesterday expressed his delight following the news that kidnappers had released the mother of Nigeria and FC Bordeaux winger, Samuel Kalu after holding her for nearly a week. Abia State Police spokesman, Godfrey Ogbona, confirmed the news of the release from captivity of Mrs. Ozuruonye Juliet Kalu who was seized from her car on February 27 when she was travelling to her home in Abia State.In his reaction, the Franco-German tactician, who on Monday released the name of the players that would prosecute the dead-rubber AFCON match against Seychelles and the international friendly against Egypt, told journalists that the news was heart-warming and hope the player will recover from the psychological trauma he had been through in the last few days.“It is good news that gladdened my heart that his (Kalu) mother has been released by kidnappers,” he remarked.The coach’s delight could be a playback to his camp mood when the Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi was in a similar situation following the kidnap of his father during the World Cup finals in Russia last year.“Footballers train to be at their best all the time but when domestic distractions like this come in between it damage the player’s inner mind and lead to drop in form. I hope the worst is over for him and he can get back to his best as soon as possible,” he pointed out.Reports said the kidnappers demanded some N3million ($40,000) for her release.But it was not known whether the money was paid, the State Police spokesman told AFP.“She was released around midnight (2300 GMT) of Monday and she has been reunited with her people,” he said.“Circumstances surrounding her release has not been disclosed to me for now.“But we are still investigating the incident in a bid towards ensuring that those who carried out the act are arrested and brought to book.”Reports also quoted the 21-year-old footballer as saying the kidnappers initially asked for N3million and then upped the sum to N15 million when they realised the she was the mother to a Super Eagles player.“We waited the whole night, we did not see her. The next morning they called again (saying) that they want more money, that the money was (being) given to another person, and now they are asking for the ransom of N15 million,” he added.Kalu made a breakthrough into Nigeria’s national side in October last year, shortly after joining French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux from Belgian outfit Gent.Meanwhile according to BSMsports.com, Kalu’s French Ligue 1 side, Bordeaux have exempted him from their league match against Montpellier at the Matmut Atlantique by 7p.m. Tuesday night.This according to the club is to allow him (Kalu) to mentally balance ahead of their subsequent matches.Last year, the father of Nigerian World Cup skipper John Mikel Obi was kidnapped at gunpoint during the tournament. He was released after payment of a N10 million ransom.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

It was disgusting and a deliberate attempt by KSU to embarrass KU. Much ado about nothing. Who cares if it was deliberate? It was funny. I don’t understand the controversy.
