Worthy Focus for 2018

Worthy Focus for 2018

Of the many items that come across my desk, this article got my attention. Published by "The Conversation" and sent out as a e-mail for sharing, the article looks at how well prepared our high school students are for their careers  To quote their e-mail:

In 2018, we've resolved to dispel the myth of the career-ready high school graduate. In a new piece at The Conversation, we argue that the American education system must evolve to meet the economic demands of the 21st century and lift up the forgotten half of young people who are failing to successfully launch their careers. The reality is that there is not enough room left in the high school curriculum, which is dominated by college prep coursework, to successfully prepare students for careers. It is past time to stop pretending otherwise.

My Book of the Month

My Book of the Month

When Michelle Dickinson-Moravek started writing her book Breaking Into My Life, she assumed that Part 3 would be about coming to terms with growing up as the daughter of a bipolar mother. After years of playing the role of child caregiver, writing her memoir launched Michelle on a journey of self-discovery that would prove surprisingly healing. Coming to terms, she realized, was no longer enough. She had to break into her own life, a quest that literally played out as she was writing the final pages.
