As area manufacturers struggle to fill skilled labor positions, a technical education problem also exists within Racine Unified in forming partnerships with area colleges and technical schools around technical education.
State Rep. Tom Weatherston (R-Caledonia) says that Racine Unified needs to step up its game when it comes to co-operating with area tech schools and universities to create a technical education program in the high schools.
Check out what he said on the Racine County Eye. But some area teachers say the district lacks leadership on the issue.
So what’s been done, what hasn’t been done and why doesn’t Racine Unified have a strong technical education program?
We’ll be looking at these issues as we look at how Racine Unified is addressing what some call a skills gap and others say is a wage gap.
