OCTOBER 2018–Approximately one year ago, the New Jersey School Boards Association, under the leadership of President Daniel T. Sinclair, created the Task Force on Educational Opportunities for the Non-College Bound Learner. The project’s ultimate goal: Identify strategies to better equip career-focused students with the skills required in a job market that is rapidly changing due to advances in artificial intelligence, automation, robotics, and other factors.
America has experienced radical changes in employment. There is a disconnect between the skills that are being taught in schools, and the skills required in many entry-level positions. The NJSBA Task Force makes 69 recommendations to address this challenge.
“We owe it to our students to respond to societal change and employment needs.”
