We often revisit the link between education and economic prosperity in our Beyond Labels discussions. This coming week, we will be joined by Tim Seeley, the new Head of School at George Stevens Academy.
We’ll explore the competing demands on high school educators:
- General Education (i.e., what should every student know before leaving high school, recognizing that the next step might be specialization in college or the workplace)
- College Preparation (what do colleges expect freshmen to know before they matriculate)
- Vocational Training (for both college-bound and non-college bound students)
All this against a backdrop of rapid social and physical development of each student.
As usual, I expect we’ll have a wide-ranging and fun conversation.
