What is true for the nation is true in the state of Washington. We have an economy strong on technology and manufacturing. Our educational system, however, is weak. Industry requires educated workers. Our schools, colleges and universities do not produce them in sufficient numbers, for myriad social, political and economic reasons. We must import them, from other states, from other countries. We depend on other states to staff our workforce.
