Across America, the most vibrant economies put education first. Utah is no exception. Utah recognizes that there is a huge economic benefit of a well-educated workforce.

That is why the Salt Lake Chamber manages Prosperity 2020, a five-year statewide plan for major gains in education.

Research shows that a person’s earning power and society’s wealth are tied to educational achievement.

Prosperity 2020 calls for Utah to be in the top ten states in the nation for percentage of adults with a postsecondary certificate or degree.

It is critical that Utah has a well-educated workforce to enable the state to compete in attracting and filling the technology jobs of the future.

To succeed, we need all levels of state leadership to move ahead on this plan, as well as public support.

Too few students are prepared for higher education and not enough earn degrees. Prosperity 2020 will change that.
