Community colleges, economy topic of ‘Think Out Loud’

Photos and Story by

The Oregon Public Broadcasting radio show, “Think Out Loud,” focused this morning on community colleges, the dour economy and the role colleges play in workforce development.

It airs again at 9 p.m. tonight (Monday, Feb. 23) if you missed it. It features Joe Cortright, an economist and adviser to Guv. Ted Kulongoski, Sharon McFarland of Workforce Systems Inc. (a huge partner with PCC in linking workers and the job market) and myself. I wore a new tie, just for the OPB audience.

We also had two PCC students who called in and offered great information about the reasons they turned to PCC during tough economic times.

The station archives past shows and you can find the Feb. 23 episode of “Think Out Loud”.
