Teresa Lubbers: Take advantage of financial aid for education, training

Compared to most of the nation, fewer Hoosiers believe they need education beyond high school to get ahead in life, according to a recent report from the American Enterprise Institute — even if the facts don’t support this belief. Hoosiers also value a four-year degree less than other regions in the country, as outlined in the report. As Indiana’s economy is being transformed by technology, automation and higher skill requirements, it’s critical that we embrace postsecondary education and training as the dominant pathway to a good job and economic mobility.
