To create a thriving community, we must invest in our student talent pipeline, from kindergarten all the way to post-secondary education.
Technology is changing our world quickly and students need support to understand the personal attributes that will help them succeed. To many employers, "soft skills" such as interpersonal communication, teamwork, critical thinking and problem solving are just as important as technical skills.
For middle and high school students, career education options should include vocational and trade programs, the armed forces and human services, along with attending a college or university.
Students should be guided toward a career path that they can be passionate about and families must receive the information necessary to make the best decisions.
Communication with parents, guardians and relative caregivers is vital at all levels, especially during these uncertain times. Information must be clear and consistent across all communication platforms.
