August 24, 2012 07:39 pm
Happy Friday everyone. Not much in the way of announcements today, but here’s what we’ve got. Enjoy the weekend!
First, we head to Oklahoma where The Oklahoman tells us that Richard Petrick, director of the Ohio-based Business Alliance for Higher Education and the Economy predicted this week that the state may have trouble keeping its workforce educated enough to fill the positions available. The best economic stimulus is a diploma, folks, have you heard?
Education Sector’s excellent blog The Quick and the Ed has a good read today on the high percentage of students passing California’s high school exit exam. The rate sits at 95 percent, but Mandy Zatynski questions whether that’s a number worth touting or not.
Never fear, we’ll be back next week with more announcements!
