About MeederMindWorks

Welcome to Meeder Mind Works – a blog dedicated to discussing how the education sector can better connect to the innovation economy.  Please join us as we reflect on ideas and issues focused on strengthening the connection between education and a high-skilled workforce.

MeederMindWorks is the blog of Hans Meeder, President of the Meeder Consulting Group, LLC, a firm providing consulting services to help strengthen the connection between education and employers through career-themed high school redesign and programs that link into postsecondary education and training. The firm provides research, analysis and support to state agencies responsible for education at the high school and college levels, as well as national organizations involved in connecting business and education.

Through the Meeder Consulting Group, Hans works closely with education leaders in several states, including Colorado, Georgia, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, Virginia, and Wyoming, to help them shape their strategic direction for career and technical education and to strengthen its connection to high school redesign and workforce development. Hans and his team also provide research and analysis for national and state-based organizations such as the Association for Career and Technical Education, the Ford Motor Company Fund, and the National Academy Foundation.

Hans has an extensive and varied career in education and workforce policy. Immediately prior to forming the Meeder Consulting Group, Meeder served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Education in the U.S. Department of Education Office of Vocational and Adult Education.  He has also served as education policy and outreach director for the House Committee on Education and the Workforce and has worked in the congressional relations office of the U.S. Department of Education, as well as for several members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
