The key to permanent job growth in the South is math and science education. That's the message Governor Haslam is taking on the road.
Monday in Chattanooga, the governor gathered business leaders, educators, and economic developers to hash out ways to close what he called the "training gap."
He says landing companies like Volkswagon show Tennessee is on the right track, but he says employers want schools to graduate students with real world experience.
"What we're hearing from our employers across the state is we have jobs available, we're not finding people trained in the right things," said Haslam.
The governor will be taking information gathered on the road to business leaders across Tennessee later this summer.
