More About ReadyNation/America’s Edge
ReadyNation/America’s Edge is the premier national business leader organization working to strengthen the economy through better policies for children and youth. With a growing membership of more than1000 business leaders, ReadyNation/America’s Edge advocates for evidence-based policies and programs that put kids on track to succeed and positively impact economic outcomes for American businesses.
ReadyNation/Americaʼs Edge is currently focused on four policy priorities: supporting quality early care and education as well as parent coaches for new and expectant families; ensuring a more skilled and better educated workforce through career-themed models in high school; and upholding the need for rigorous college- and career-readiness standards. These policy priorities are key components to reversing the widening “skills gaps” that so many of our nation’s businesses are experiencing now, and which experts predict will increase in the future if current trends do not change.
Our business leaders educate state and federal policy-makers and the public about these high-quality, proven and promising investments by generating earned media, releasing new research, participating in press and public events, and communicating with policy-makers.
