Report: Cleveland Needs More Manufacturing Training for Students

A recent report by Manufacturing Works — a manufacturing advocacy partner for the Cleveland area — urges the Cleveland school district and the private sector to work together to train more students for manufacturing careers. The report emphasizes the need for such skills-training particularly in the city’s eastern and southeastern suburbs.

In‘s story on the report’s findings, it’s noted that “as few as 300 students graduate each year from manufacturing-related vocational programs in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties, while those communities have 4,300 job openings requiring training annually.” Dan T. Moore, owner of the Dan T. Moore Company and the Cleveland Industrial Innovation Center, is quoted as saying training needs to start in the fifth or sixth grade since “passion at that age comes from making something.” 8/5/2019
