Who are the winners and losers in our skill development system? How can we move the onus of skill further into the purview of employers and away from our education system?

Nichola Lowe is a professor in City and Regional Planning at UNC-Chapel Hill. Her work focuses on the institutional arrangements that lead to more inclusive forms of urban and regional economic development.
