Gov goes to STL, Springfield, Hannibal to talk STEM
Parson traveled the state Tuesday to speak about the issues of STEM education and expanding drug treatment courts, which will be the focus of the special session. He made a stop at a St. Louis non-profit that provides training for tech careers called LaunchCode in the Central West End. It was there where he expressed how these issues work together.
“Believe it or not those drug courts are going to play a part in workforce development, cause what we should be trying to do instead of sentencing people to prison, we should be figuring how to be get them cleaned up and how to we get them into the workforce.” Parson said at the LaunchCode event.
