Too many of our students finish high school only to find they're not prepared for college or the workforce. New York is implementing a comprehensive effort to help turn that around. Our goal is to help students develop a deeper understanding of subject matter, learn how to think critically and apply what they have learned to the real world -- in short, to get them ready for life after high school.
All across the State, New Yorkers - from parents to educators to legislators to business and community leaders - have been hard at work to support the changes in instruction necessary for every student to be ready for college and career. EngagedVoices is a chance to share these perspectives from the field- the successes, challenges, ideas and struggles- so that we can learn from each other and together, we can help every student succeed.
