    According to a January study by the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University, the longest waiting lists for vocational schools as of October were in many of the state’s Gateway Cities, including Worcester and Fitchburg.

    Barry Bluestone, an author of the study, said workforce training is a major challenge facing the state’s economy. The study indicates that Massachusetts will need tens of thousands more workers for jobs in construction, health care and manufacturing within the next decade.
