Schools Take Major Steps to Prepare Students to Be College- and Career-Ready
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
More high school students today are graduating college-ready, career-ready or both, thanks to an emphasis by modern business and industry, strong support from states and more rigorous learning experiences at schools across the nation. It has been said many times, but now it is sinking in. From hospitals to factories, employees need to know how to function individually and as a team, how to assess information accurately and how to diagnose problems to make instant decisions. Most states have stepped up by adopting rigorous educational content standards. This newsletter explores how schools are upgrading and how teachers are becoming more fully equipped to ready students for college, careers or both. The instruction features hands-on projects that students can readily grasp while learning, as well as assessments that guide teachers in adjusting instruction to meet students' needs. All efforts are standards-based so that students receive what they deserve in education.
