Employers need to get involved with Linked Learning. They’ll be not only helping students, but helping themselves.
Sometimes called Career Pathways, Linked Learning is a relatively new educational program, funded by the state and through grants, that integrates rigorous academic and career tech learning with employers who provide students with real-world, paid-workplace experiences. That makes high school graduates both eligible for college and more hirable.
Sounds great for students; what’s in it for employers? Plenty, many industry and business partners told me.
