What Does It Mean to Be Career Ready? CRPC Proposes Definition in Brief

Posted by Andrala Walker - On November 05, 2012 (EST)

Policymakers and the public alike are
embracing “college and career readiness” as the solution, but what does it mean? Much of the policy debate focuses on college entrance and completion, without remediation, as a solution. However, college readiness is only part of the answer. What is needed is a more
comprehensive strategy that bridges the gap between education and workforce preparation.

To find that solution, the Career Readiness Partner Council was formed in 2012. The Council unites leaders from national education and workforce organizations with the goal of bringing clarity and focus to what it means to be career ready. This document highlights the outcome of the collaborative efforts of the Council to help inform policy and practice in states and communities.
