In our modern globalized landscape, where North Carolina competes for top talent with economies from around the world, our state must step up its game to ensure we continue to fill the new jobs being created by our high-powered business climate. To that end, the North Carolina Chamber is committed to supporting effective K-12 public schools that fully prepare students with 21st-century career-training opportunities, and which sync up with world-class community college and university systems to produce a globally competitive workforce in North Carolina and secure our position as a pioneering state in cutting-edge innovation.
