Yes. The Educational Attainment Committee also realized it needed to hear from individual Alabama residents on this important issue and developed an online survey to collect thoughts on education beyond high school.
The survey was designed to capture individual residents’ perspectives and opinions related to post-secondary educational attainment both broadly and personally, as well as their perspective on their child/children’s educational attainment (if a parent). The survey also aimed to increase awareness of the Alabama Works website, the regional Career Centers, and the High School Career Coaches.
Partnering with the Alabama Community College System, Department of Labor, and the Alabama Department of Education, we have received feedback from nearly 1,500 survey respondents. Findings will be used to inform strategies to increase educational attainment as part of the statewide strategic plan.
