College and Career Readiness: Making High School Matter

College and Career Readiness: Making High School Matter

Jul 2013

The labor market is changing, the world is flattening: Too many of our youth fail to complete high school and many who do are ill-prepared for any career pathway, including those that require college. Drawing from recent national and international reports and current research, Dr. Stone explored in this presentation made at the annual conference of the Iowa Association for Career and Technical Education how CTE can make high school matter to more students and fulfill its necessary role of preparing all young people to become successful participants in our economic system.
