This report presents recent data and analysis on the educational and workforce challenges facing Wisconsin, and provides an overview of statewide efforts to meet this challenge by moving more working adults through the educational pipeline and towards family-sustaining careers. It focuses specifically on various initiatives called “bridges” that are being pioneered at technical colleges across the state to help low-income adults access and succeed in postsecondary training.
