A Pipeline to Industry
President Obama issued a challenge to redesign high schools “to better equip graduates for the demands of a high-tech economy.” But schools aren’t alone in this redesign. Some big businesses are building a direct pipeline of workers by designing their own curricula to ensure that students have the skills needed to succeed in their businesses. This issue will look at case studies and collaborations with high schools from the business perspective, as well as examine the skills employers are looking for in the 21st-century employee.

Articles in this issue will help you to strengthen your advocacy voice throughout the year through the use of new technologies and under-utilized tactics.
