WhyEconomic Survival
  • Our students face both national and international
    competition
  • Research shows many students are not prepared to
    succeed in college or workplace
  • Courses like Algebra II are new gateway to higher
    paying jobs
  • Michigans economic success is tied to a
    well-educated workforce

3
WhyEmployers Want
  • Strong math and science backgrounds
  • Creative problem solvers
  • Effective communicators
  • Leadership qualities
  • Flexibility - ability to adapt
  • A minimum of 14 years of education

4
College-ready is Work-ready
  • we know that the skills expected for college
    are also the skills needed to enter todays
    workforce. So whether students plan further
    education or work after high school graduation,
    they need to graduate college-ready.
