Governor McAuliffe announces education legislation at Norfolk Technical Center

Governor Terry McAuliffe announced Wednesday a series of legislative proposals aimed at expanding economic opportunity across the Commonwealth by improving Virginia’s educational system and addressing issues ranging from daycare facilities to building a 21st century workforce. The Governor outlined his administration’s educational goals one week before the 2015 General Assembly is scheduled to convene.

Speaking at the Norfolk Technical Center, Governor McAuliffe said, “Building a new Virginia economy begins with an education workforce development system that prepares Virginians at every level to succeed.

“This session I look forward to working with the General Assembly on commonsense steps to offer every Virginian a better shot at economic success from infancy through adulthood. Working together we can expand opportunity in every corner of Virginia and lay a foundation for the stronger, more diverse economy our families deserve.”
