What statistics tell us
  • For every 100 California 9th graders in 2006
  • 65 graduated from high school
  • 36 entered college the next Fall
  • 25 were still enrolled as sophomores
  • 20 graduated within 6 years
  • Student Pipeline - Transition and Completion
    Rates from 9th Grade to College
  • The National Center for Higher Education
    Management Systems 2009

DROPOUTS AND POORLY PREPARED STUDENTS HAVE A
NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE ECONOMY
  • More than 175,000 students did not graduate from
    Californias high schools in 2009 the lost
    lifetime earnings in California for that class of
    dropouts alone total more than 45.5 billion.
  • California would save more than 2.3 billion in
    health care costs over the lifetimes of each
    class of dropouts had they earned their diplomas.
  • If Californias high schools graduated all of
    their students ready for college, the state would
    save almost 687.9 million a year in community
    college remediation costs and lost earnings.
  • Californias economy would see a combination of
    crime-related savings and additional revenue of
    about 1.1 billion each year if the male high
    school graduation rate increased by just 5.
  • Alliance for Excellent Education (www.all4ed.org)

20
Trends of the Future
  • 60 of todays high school students will work in
    jobs which do not yet exist.
  • More than 75 of all college students will work
    while attending college.
  • Performance based pay will be the norm.
  • International ventures in business will grow
    exponentially.

21
Californias Forgotten Middle-Skill Jobs
  • Some 43 percent of all job openings in California
    between now and 2016 will be in middle-skill
    jobs.
  •  
  • Middle-skill jobs require more than a high school
    diploma but less than a four-year college degree.
  •  
  • Refers to the level of education required by a
    particular job not to the actual competence and
    capacity of workers and occupationsmany
    middle-skill occupations require highly skilled
    trade and technical workers with several years of
    training and on- the-job experience.
  •  
  • Community colleges, apprenticeship programs,
    nonprofit community-based training organizations,
    and private career schools provide middle-skill
    training.

What do we know about Career Guidance and student
success?
23
Career Education Missing
Most career decision-making is largely
unintentional and not fully informed 84 of
Americans say they are not in their ideal job.
(Career Building) 78 of students credit their
parents as their top adult influence in career
planning. (Ferris State University) 28 of
12th-graders see school as meaningful, and 39
believe it will impact success later life. (NCES,
Condition of Education 2002)
24
Student Success
  • Research indicates that when students see the
    relevance of what they are studying in school in
    relation to their own career goals, they can
    begin to make the connection between current
    coursework and the achievement of future life and
    work goals. Therefore, one resource for engaging
    students in their current education is a strong
    career guidance program.
  • SSPI Jack OConnell in ASVAB CEP support letter

Research ShowsInformed Considered Career
Decisions Work
  • Educational Outcomes
  • Improved preparation and participation in
    postsecondary education
  • Better articulation among levels of education and
    between education and work
  • Higher graduation and retention rates
  • Social Benefits
  • Higher levels of worker satisfaction and career
    retention
  • Shorter path to primary labor market for young
    workers
  • Lower incidence of work-related stress and
    depression
  • Economic Consequences

26
High School Career Exploration Programs Do
They Work?
  • Found convincing evidence that career exploration
    programs are improving the future prospects of a
    large and diverse group of high school students
    by increasing the likelihood that they will
    graduate and go on to postsecondary education.
  • Students who participate in career exploration
    programs are more likely than nonparticipants to
    take college entrance and Advanced Placement
    exams
  • Students who participate in career exploration
    programs are more likely to graduate from high
    school
  • Students who participate in career exploration
    programs are more likely to go to college and to
    attend a two-year rather than four-year
    institution

27
Evaluation of The Real Game
  • A two-year evaluation, involving 600 students,
    indicated that the U.S. version of The Real Game
  • Significantly strengthened students
    understanding of the knowledge, skills and
    abilities necessary to succeed in the workplace
  • Positively impacted students goal setting
    abilities and confidence in their future success
  • Increased students engagement in school, and
  • Benefited students sense of self-efficacy
  • University of Massachuetts, Amherst, 2007

28
What do they need to know and be able to do?
29
The Ultimate GOAL Of Career Education
To help students develop the career
self-management skills they will need, lifelong
to be healthy, self-reliant and resilient
citizens, able to find work they love in times
of constant workforce change, and maintain
balance between work and other life roles
30
Career Readiness
  • Career readiness involves three major skill
    areas
  • core academic skills and the ability to apply
    those skills to concrete situations in order to
    function in the workplace and in routine daily
    activities
  • employability skills (such as critical thinking
    and responsibility) that are essential in any
    career area
  • technical, job-specific skills related to a
    specific career pathway.
  • Association for Career Technical Education 2010

31
Getting Real Helping Teens Find Their Future
  • New Goal for High school
  • Every student will graduate from high school
    having developed a postsecondary plan that is
    grounded in at least tentative career choices and
    has a high probability of success.
  • College Graduation Indicators include
  • High school grade point average (academic skills)
  • Career maturity/focus
  • College Drop Out Reasons includes
  • Lack of commitment to graduating (no clear goal
    or reason to attend)
  • Kenneth Gray, 2009

Critical Skills Needs and Resources for the
Changing Workforce
  • Overall, employers placed the greatest weight on
    employee adaptability and critical thinking
    skills. HR (human resource) professionals and
    employees both reported that adaptability/flexibil
    ity and critical thinking/problem-solving skills
    were of greatest importance now compared with two
    years ago.
  • A Study by the Society for Human Resource
    Management and WSJ.com June 2008

35
Are They Really Ready to Work?
  • Employability skills dominate rankings of
    knowledge and skills expected to in- crease in
    importance over the next five years.
  • Employers identified critical thinking/problem
    solving, information-technology application,
    teamwork/collaboration, creativity/innovation and
    diversity as the top five such skills.
