🍏 Why is education important to health?

There is much evidence linking educational attainment and high school graduation rates with health outcomes. People with more education have lower rates of the most common acute and chronic diseases. High school graduates earn higher salaries, have higher self-esteem, higher personal life satisfaction, fewer health problems, and are less involved in criminal activity compared to high school dropouts. In addition, households headed by a high school graduate accumulate ten times more wealth than households headed by a high school dropout. The high school graduation rate for San Bernardino County was 79% in the 2013-14 school year. With regard to higher education, only 19% of county residents had a bachelor’s degree, graduate degree or professional degree, as compared to 32% across the state in 2014. Yet, roughly 60% of jobs nationwide require some type of training or education beyond high school.

🎯 How do the education goals align with the Countywide Vision?

Education is a core element in the Countywide Vision. It focuses on reducing the number of high school and college drop outs, integrating educational institutions into economic and job creation efforts, and partnering with all sectors of the community to support the success of every child from cradle to career.

What did the community say?

Community forum participants stressed the need to improve the quality of primary and secondary education. In addition, community forum participants said that there needs to be an increased emphasis on post-secondary education (college and vocational training) that matches skills required in the local labor market. Planning for action, subject matter experts shared several recommendations to frame next steps, including:

  • Document and centralize information about available educational resources;
  • Examine opportunities to strengthen the link between preschool and K-12 education providers and resources; and,
  • Address barriers that keep students and parents from continuing their education.
