Gov. Kay Ivey is planning to launch a new education initiative focused on PreK–3rd-grade education, workforce development and computer science programs in middle and high schools across the state.
The program, dubbed the “Strong Start, Strong Finish” initiative, was announced at the Innovation Depot in Birmingham on Wednesday.
“Alabama needs a comprehensive approach of collaboration that improves education from Pre-K to the workforce. That’s the goal of Strong Start, Strong Finish,” Ivey said. “Our educational system has not received the positive spotlight it deserves. Under Strong Start, Strong Finish, we will bring all stakeholders to the table and provide coordination that will help students succeed in school and after they graduate.”
