Group of education, business and community leaders to make recommendations on readying K-12 students for career paths, higher education
A group of education, business and community leaders is working to make recommendations on readying K-12 students for career paths, higher education. The Integrating College and Career Readiness Task Force in Massachusetts will be working to develop recommendations to better integrate college and career readiness into K-12 education.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) President Dennis Berkey has been appointed to this task force. WPI is my alma mater (Mechanical Engineering Aerospace, 1992) and I've been a huge proponent of WPI's educational Plan as a great way to teach any subject, in any grade level.
The task force will be looking at ways to engage students, provide early access to career education and multiple pathways to success in their post secondary education.
What I like about this group is that it is combining educators, business persons, and community leaders to work together.
