2 Louisiana Community & Technical College System Changing Lives, Creating Futures The Louisiana Challenge One in five adults (aged 18-64) in Louisiana have not finished high school ranking us near the bottom in the U.S. The number one reason given by companies for not locating to Louisiana is a lack of a qualified workforce. At least 55% of all new jobs will require 1-2 years of specialized education and training. Yet, only 8% of our high school graduates go to community and technical colleges to develop the knowledge, skills and abilities required for these jobs. Meanwhile, every hour of every day, over two people who have attended college in Louisiana leave the state to pursue better opportunities.
