State Treasurer and Chair of the Massachusetts School Building Authority Deborah Goldberg recently released the results of a workforce needs study in the Bay State. The report, conducted in partnership with Northeastern University’s Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban Regional Policy, finds that there will be roughly 1 million job openings in Massachusetts over the next seven years. More than 60 percent of those jobs will require less than a bachelor’s degree and one-third can be filled by those with a high school diploma. Treasurer Goldberg spoke with WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief Jim Levulis about how the report can help Massachusetts implement educational strategies to better train students for those careers.
