Education & Local Economy

Individual opportunity + collective prosperity = thriving communities

The San Francisco Bay Area is highly educated with lots of good jobs.

Are we still?

A coming surge in Bay Area labor force retirements will leave a potential worker shortage of more than 700,000 by 2030.

There is a gap in qualified workers and the education that is needed for the future workplace.

Education quality and attainment is unequal.

There are wide racial inequities in educational attainment. Regionally, the majority of Asian or Pacific Islanders and Whites have at least a bachelor's degree, compared with about one in five Latinx and Native American adults. Latinx and Mixed-race adults are most likely to be without a high school diploma (about three in 10). (photo credit: J. Thomas)

The 'middle class' of the Bay Area is at risk. The low wage workers are already struggling.

The number of low-wage jobs will continue to increase, and there is no likely surge in middle-wage jobs. Many jobs are at risk of getting automated. (photo credit: P. Perkins)
