Surveys: High school graduates need more life skills, less test prep
from By Sheilamary Koch
From Oct. 22:
Real-world skills warrant more emphasis in high school claim students, employers, parents and other adults in three nationwide surveys conducted this June. While 83% of the students surveyed do plan to go to college, they’d like to see less focus on college-entry exams and more on practical skills like personal finance and tax preparation. The surveys, funded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, polled a demographically diverse sampling of over 2,000 people from across the country.
