    Alan Clayton-Matthews, an associate professor of economics at Northeastern University who reviewed the report before its release, agreed with its findings and encouraged policy makers to continue to invest in the education system as an engine of economic growth.

    “To the extent that a labor force is highly skilled, the jobs will come and prepare opportunities for them,” Clayton-Matthews said. “That’s one of the reasons Massachusetts has a high-technology economy. We weren’t born with it. We got it by attracting employers with our highly skilled labor force.”
