We have finished the planning for the 5th Annual Business Education & Career Summit for High School Girls a joint event between our foundation and the Rutgers Business School.
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.
