Rochester Post Bulletin: "Franken to Chamber: Education a key to helping economy"
Senator Franken recently spoke to the Rochester Chamber of Commerce on the importance of education in creating American jobs.

That falls in line with the Rochester Area Chamber's push for better education and training, particularly in the areas of math and science, to make sure that the 10,000 jobs projected to be created in the city in the next 10 years will be filled by skilled workers.
