THE NEW MESSAGE
MUST be that all students need additional education/training after high school, AND there are many avenues to accomplish this, AND they are all equally valuable and successful! We must promote doing as well as knowing, NOT just knowing. One of the best ways is expecting our schools to have, value and promote career education for ALL students as an equal part of their education. After all, they will ALL have careers one day! A good cross section follows: a targeted degree, military, apprenticeships, technical/community college, business/industry-based training and certifications. Students pursuing these should be applauded and supported in all of them, not just getting a degree, any degree.
