3/7/13 - Dr. Heath Prince Quoted in the Austin American-Statesmen

Dr. Heath Prince, Associate Director and Research Scientist at the Ray Marshall Center, was quoted in the March 7th edition of the Austin American-Statesman. Commenting on the Texas Fast Start Program, the subject of a bill in the state legislature to train workers in the skills demanded by local industry, Prince pointed out that these sorts of initiatives are often strengthened by the inclusion of a comprehensive set of support services designed to assist participants in remaining, and succeeding, in the program. The Ray Marshall Center has compiled research about similar initiatives in Austin and around the country. Referring to the capacity of effective training programs to be responsive to the changing skill demands of industry, Prince noted, “To the extent (training programs) can transfer that (responsiveness) to post-secondary institutions and calibrate a curriculum based on those changing needs, the better they are at training students coming through the program.” Read the full article here.
