Abstract:

What’s the real purpose of a high school education? Do “college-ready” and “career-ready” mean different things? What can we learn from nations such as Singapore, which has invested in a comprehensive system for constant upskilling and reskilling? What do new workplace technologies imply for the way we educate community college students?
