The mismatch between education and employer needs is a pretty insightful
comment. This is an ongoing problem with Utah's economy -- not enough
experienced/skilled workers to drive next-generation technologies and
businesses. This is one of the reasons the state can't attract the high-tech
companies it wants without also importing talent.With the state's
continued neglect of higher education, Utah won't be able to fuel its economic
aspirations. Utah's universities are already losing top talent as the
legislature continues to cut funding and talks of abolishing tenure...
University research and education are the economic engines of the state -- but
our politicians are all too anxious to kill them off!
