“World’s Best Workforce” means striving to: –Have all students meet school readiness goals –Have all third grade students achieve grade-level literacy –Close the academic achievement gap among all racial and ethnic groups of students and between students living in poverty and their more privileged peers as well as students receiving special education services and those that are not. –Have all students graduate from high school –Have all students attain college and career preparedness World’s Best Workforce – Legislation Goals
The result of the legislation will be a state accountability system that is locally owned, developed with parent and community involvement and supported by MDE guidance and technical assistance in continuous school improvement planning. WBWF: State Accountability System
Students who are career and college ready are able to successfully complete credit- bearing coursework at a two- or four-year college or university or other credit-bearing postsecondary program without need for remediation.
For purposes of statewide accountability, "career and college ready" means a high school graduate has the knowledge, skills, and competencies to successfully pursue a career pathway including postsecondary credit leading to a degree, diploma, certificate, or industry-recognized credential and employment.
