CT Governor Dan Malloy spoke to Damon Scott about the new program “Go Back to Get Ahead.” Check out the interview and get all the details!
Go Back to Get Ahead is a new program kicking off in CT which will allow people to go back to school to finish those degrees they never received, and it’s an awesome opportunity!
“This is a great program that we started. We know there are well over 100,000 people living in CT who started an associate degree program or a baccalaureate degree program, and never finished. We want them to finish, so we’ve invited people back to school, to go to one of our 12 community colleges, our four regional universities or our online university,” said Gov Malloy. “We will give you one free course, for each course you take, up to three free courses.”
Not only will this help individuals, but getting more degrees in the hands of folks in our state will give us a leg up when it comes to the rest of the nation, too. “The reality in America right now is by 2020, 70% of all jobs will require a degree,” Malloy continued. “We’ve got to get ready for that day and we want to get CT– a fairly educated state– to be an even better educated state.”
