CLASP Pathways to Good Jobs

Posted by Andrala Walker - On October 22, 2012 (EST)

Education and training are drivers of economic mobility and opportunity. CLASP works to strengthen federal and state education and training policy to ensure that low-wage workers and low-income individuals can enter and advance in the labor market, and to make sure that American businesses have access to workers with skills they need to compete. Transitional jobs, career exploration, job placement, and access to work supports such as child care also are essential for helping individuals get better jobs, succeed in education and training, and advance along a career pathway.

Wouldn't it be great if the K-12 education system could re-implement the vocational/career track into their curriculum? I think that we'd have more people off of UI and working. Why did we get rid of it in the first place? Who says that college is the track that all students should take anyway?
