Adult Career Pathways: Providing a Second Chance in Public Education
Written and Compiled by Richard “Dick” Hinckley and Dan M. Hull, Current and Past Presidents of CORD
The experts behind Career Pathways issue a “call to action” on behalf of the millions of adult Americans who are searching for a second chance. Adult Career Pathways provides compelling research, insightful analysis, and detailed solutions to complex and critical issues facing our nation. Only with collaboration between education, industry, workforce boards, and community organizations will dislocated, unemployed, and underemployed workers be efficiently and properly retooled with the skill sets required to power business and industry’s competitive success.
The contributors to this book believe Adult Career Pathways is the vehicle for effectively addressing workforce development and economic competitiveness simultaneously. The book is filled with useful data, practical strategies and descriptions of efforts that have already begun to make a significant impact. It addresses:
