Washington, DC, March 27, 2019 – Mark Hays, Vice Chancellor for Workforce and Economic Development for the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD), and member of Rebuilding America’s Middle Class (RAMC), testified before the House Education and Labor Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Investment about innovations in apprenticeship programs.
“I would like to emphasize how critical the role of the community college system is in moving apprenticeships to the next level. While registered apprenticeships have been around for decades, it’s only recently that the community college has begun to play a significant role. Community colleges must continue to add and expand apprenticeships so individuals and communities can thrive. We cannot allow ourselves to be boxed in by excluding any type of program that allows individuals to obtain the necessary skills to succeed and businesses to grow.”
