Becoming College and Career Ready

Every student should graduate prepared for the next challenge: college, careers, and life. They should be ready to meet the demands of the 21st century workplace. This is an enormous task that educators, guidance counselors, and administrators face today.

School districts nationwide are confronting this challenge head on in a multitude of ways, from advancements in Career and Technical Education (CTE) to increased work-based learning and job shadowing efforts. These efforts and many others signal progress, yet challenges like budgeting, staffing, and time constraints still limit the number of students who will benefit from these progressive programs.

A recent study by Civic Enterprises for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation examined the views of diverse youth, ages 16–25, who had failed to complete high school. One of the five actions they suggested for schools striving to improve students’ chances of completion was to make school more engaging through real-world, experiential learning.  Students want to see the connection between school and work, which means that we need to go beyond the traditional curricula to help them.
