  • Jim Stone Guest Blogs on College- and Career-Readiness for the Shanker Institute | NRCCTE
    guest blog entry In recent years a consensus has emerged among education researchers and policymakers that all students should graduate from high school both college and career ready President Obama has made this part of his education agenda And numerous advocacy organizations have championed the notion But what does the phrase actually mean College ready usually means not needing remedial courses once in college and career ready is usually equated with college ready High standards and expectations are the means recommended to prepare college ready graduates This means rigorous courses aligned with standards and tests to ensure that students meet those standards Presumably career readiness comes with the same requirements The evidence contradicts the rhetoric however Paul Barton at ETS Peter Cappelli at the Wharton School and other labor market experts argue that being prepared for college is not the same as being prepared for a successful transition into the workforce Read more at the Albert Shanker Institute blog Calendar of Events Press Releases Core Issues View All Career Pathways Programs of Study Curriculum Integration Retention Completion Accountability Assessment Related Reports High Quality CTE A Systems Approach to Benefitting All Students Read more Research Based Pedagogies for Career and Technical
