The new school year is underway—and we are off to an auspicious beginning in California with news about the Golden State Pathways Program (GSPP).
When educators and employers work together, they transform communities by building the talent pipeline required for economic prosperity. We are poised to make those changes at scale and bring it to life as never before if we act wisely and collectively with our state’s $500 million investment in the Golden State Pathways program, writes Loren Kaye.
On June 30, Governor Newsom signed the 2022–2023 state budget, which includes a $700 million investment in Golden State Pathways and dual enrollment. These funds will dramatically increase the number of young people who have access to genuine, effective college and career opportunities—and bring about new education and workforce equity for generations.
The pandemic exacerbated teacher shortages that must be addressed, and it also shined a light on the need to find new ways to engage and empower our young people. With thoughtful implementation to reach the communities and students who need it most, Golden State Pathways promises to help us do both, writes Teach Plus California's Sarah Lillis and Linked Learning Alliance's Anne Stanton.
