Report: Building Pathways to Credentials and Careers

October 22nd, 2010

Across Mississippi thousands of adults work hard each day to support their families and the communities in which they live. The determination and commitment of these adults is one of the state’s greatest assets. However, many of these adults, particularly those without postsecondary experience, work in low-wage jobs without opportunities for advancement.

More than 348,000 working-age adults in Mississippi have no formal education beyond high school, and almost 75 percent of Mississippi’s working-age adults do not have a postsecondary degree. Connecting adults to postsecondary education and training prepares the state’s residents and puts more Mississippians on a path to economic security.
