With the growing complexity of the worlds and the increasing demands of the 21st century workforce, there is little question that all students should graduate from high school fully prepared for college AND careers.
From an academic perspective, college and career readiness means that a high school graduate has the knowledge and skills in English and Mathematics necessary to qualify for and succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing post secondary coursework with the need for remediation -- simply put, a high school graduate has the English and Math knowledge and skills needed to qualify for and succeed in the post-secondary job training and/or education necessary for their chosen career path.
