Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin says education is the “new minimum” for economic success. Fallin was in Santa Fe, N.M., on Monday for a summit to discuss connecting education with the workforce. Fallin said the number of well-paying jobs that required a high school education or less has fallen from 80% about 50 years ago to 35% today. She said the new minimum for well paying jobs is a two year or four year college degree or a certificate in the field in which a person wishes to work. Fallin is a chair of the National Governors Association. The summit is part of her initiative title “America Works: Education and Training for Tomorrow’s Jobs.” She was joined by Gov. Gary Herbert and American Samoa Gov. Lolo Matalasi Moliga.
