All too often, students do not pursue education

27 September, 2013

All too often, students do not pursue education in the fields that are most demanded by employers. Furthermore, students in K–12 and institutions of higher education do not receive sufficient information about where demand is for workers (in terms of what industries in the region have large growth). Therefore, too few students attending college or technical schools choose programs that will have high returns on investment. This trend suggests that there is a lack of useful, and ongoing, career counseling to help students and parents make informed choices, as well as a lack of data being shared with schools about the state’s or region’s economic outlook and career opportunities.
