We've got a lot of work to do to prepare high school students for their next stage in life.
According to a recent survey sponsored by Achieve, a national not-for-profit focused on education reform, and Hart Research Associates, neither university professors nor prospective employers find American high school graduates to be well prepared. Here is an excerpt from their report:
One area I think would help with this problem is align student education with vocational training according to their natural bent, personality, or talents. Many of our students are not interested or engaged in learning because they don't see a relevant connection to their lives. We have a responsibility to our youth to create learning environments that inspire and empower them based on how God uniquely designed them in order for them to get the most out of their lives.
This is not an impossible situation, but it is critical. We must be more proactive in equipping students to get to their next level, whether we have to do it inside the classroom or outside of it.
