One strategy for addressing the misalignment among postsecondary education, state workforce development programs and state economic development strategies is to create career pathways programs at community colleges where students are able to enroll in a defined track of coursework that leads to jobs in high-demand fields within a state or region. This issue of "The Progress of Education Reform" features four recent reports by Workforce Strategy Center (WSC) that make the case for implementing career pathways systems as one solution to the problem of system misalignment. WSC is nationally recognized for developing innovative policy strategies and is a leader in implementing state and regional career pathways initiatives. In addition, the reports offer practical strategies for getting state and regional career pathways systems started. (Contains 1 footnote.) [Additional content was provided by Bruce Vandal.]
