From CTE Policy Watch – Education Week recently released a multi-part special report on schools and the future of work. The series covers a number of topics related to an ever-changing workforce in the 21st century, and suggests ways educators can prepare students for future careers – many of which don’t yet exist
The series includes stories from EdWeek staff, distinguished commentators, and even one story crowd-sourced to social media. From how technological innovations will impact learning to labor market data and education strategies, the series covers a wide range of topics of interest to the CTE community. While ACTE doesn’t necessarily endorse all of the views expressed, the contents of the report at large merit some discussion. Find the full list of stories included in the series below:
