What does it mean?

College and career readiness demands students know more than just content. They must also demonstrate that they know how to learn and build upon that content to solve problems. They must develop versatile communication skills, work collaboratively and work competitively in a school or work environment. Ensuring that students possess both the academic and technical know-how necessary for a career beyond the classroom is a great step toward succeeding on whatever path they choose.

Research shows that starting the conversation of college and career readiness early helps to better prepare students to be active and contributing members with realized 21st Century Skills.
