Higher education is a necessity for Washington’s students seeking family-wage jobs.
Whether a student wants to work in health care, manufacturing, or aerospace, a degree or credential beyond high school is a must. The research is clear — two-thirds of Washington jobs in just five years will require some sort of post-secondary degree.
But with significantly declining state support, a growing achievement gap, and a third of high school graduates needing remediation before they can enter higher education, many Washington students are left behind.
LEV is committed to keeping higher education affordable and accessible for all Washington high school students and ensuring sure that students graduate with a two- or four-year degree or industry certificate.
