A cross-sector collaboration focused on educational attainment in North Carolina, called “myFutureNC,” asked ECONorthwest to help develop a statewide postsecondary attainment goal. As part of our research, ECONorthwest developed a set of education and workforce indicators and evidence-based targets to help track state progress toward systemwide improvement in education delivery. The resulting goal—that 2 million North Carolinians ages 25-44 obtain a high-quality postsecondary degree or credential by 2030—is one of the most ambitious education goals in the nation and has been both signed into state law and endorsed by leading statewide organizations.
