Workforce Development Update: HB22
House Bill 22 is a key Workforce Development proposal that has unanimous approval in education committees.
Chairman Brooks's bill would require local school districts to offer at least six EPSO college credit-bearing courses to their high school students, ranging from the local district's selection of any combination of Advanced Placement (AP), dual credit, dual enrollment, International Baccalaureate (IB), and industry certification courses. 
This law promises to increase high school graduates' participation in and completion of a continuing postsecondary education of some kind. This will help to address education gaps in filling job openings in  STEM and technology-driven career fields in Tennessee.
