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_imgThe Confederation of African Football (CAF), thursday announced that the next edition of its premier tournament after the one in Cameroon will hold in June/July of 2023.According to the acting scribe of CAF, Abel Bah, the event would hold at a different calendar from the AFCON 2022 in Cameroon. The preference of January/February date for the edition in Cameroon is because of weather situation of the Central African country.The timing of the competition has been the subject of speculation after President Ahmad stated in June that it would take place in 2023 while saying he ‘did not know what month’. “As of today, the 2023 Nations Cup is planned for June/July because, to make it clear, in the regulations we have decided to play all Nations Cups in June/July,” Bah told BBC Sport Africa.In 2017, CAF decided to schedule all future Nations Cup for these months, enshrining the change in its tournament regulations.The next Nations Cup will take place in January 2022 however owing to unfavourable weather conditions in Cameroon in June and July, when the host country suffers some of the wettest months of the year.“The Nations Cup in Cameroon, after the request of the authorities, was postponed to January/February,” added Bah.“As of today, we haven’t received the same request from Ivorian authorities.”Given that Cote d’ivoire suffers its wettest month of the year in June, such a request should not be ruled out.However a move to earlier dates in 2023 could prove difficult as the 2022 World Cup will be played between 21 November and 18 December.With a Nations Cup in early 2022 and mid-2023, and the 2022 World Cup it means some of Africa’s leading footballers could play three major tournaments in the space of 18 months.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
