The California EDGE Coalition is a non-partisan group united in the belief that:
- California’s future economic growth rests in large measure on the skill base of its workers.
- The state and its industrial leadership are now at serious risk of losing the competitive advantage of a highly trained workforce and lag other states in responding to this challenge.
- The Governor and Legislature must lead a strategic effort to forge the state’s impressive education and training infrastructure into an integrated system of talent development that addresses the needs of all California workers and employers.
- In the absence of this kind of leadership, California’s future is uncertain. Both employers and workers face the threat of economic decline.
