Top Higher Education Official Calls For More Vocational Education In Tennessee - SHALINA CHATLANI, National Public Radio

The executive director of Tennessee's Higher Education Commission, Mike Krause, says the agency will form a task force to see how local colleges and universities can meet employer demands. The move aligns with Gov. Bill Lee's mission of creating more vocational education in the state.  During Wednesday's budget hearing, Krause said he’s fearful colleges and universities in the state aren’t preparing students for jobs of the future. He says they should talk to employers before considering new course offerings.
