2 Purpose of School Work-based Learning Articulation Agreement Manufacturing & STEM Careers

3 The primary aim of education is not to enable students to do well in school, but to help them do well in the lives they lead outside of school. Elliot W. Eisner

4 What is the Purpose of School? Learning how to sit in rows. Learning how to get up and move en masse at the sound of a bell. Learning how to stay in place for 45-minute increments. Learning how to override your bodily functions. Learning how to answer the questions that the person standing in front of the room already knows the answer to. It’s a training ground for behavioral management. It’s the place where kids go to watch adults work really hard!

5 NC Board of Education Mission Every public school student will graduate from high school, globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21st Century.

6 Education Plan All students must graduate from high school and be career, college, and citizenship READY.

7 Boosting Teen Employment Prospects Teen unemployment dropped 53% from 1999 to 2012 Working at an early age generates a set of benefits that are manifest in improved lifetime employment and earnings outcomes as well as improved educational attainment outcomes.
