A comment made by a participant:
I always find so much value in hearing directly from the PDE and IU personnel who help to advise the boots on the ground, so thank you to Nick Paolini and Laura Fridirici for spending that time with us at the January 16, event at Slippery Rock University on How Prepared are Students for the World after High School. What an asset to have that access in real time as we navigate through new regulations and recommendations! One of the things I love most about the style of HH Education Events is the diversity of voices…and this training was no different. The only way educators can better prepare students for the world after high school is if we are tuned into what post-secondary providers and employers need to fill the pipelines. Events like these not only help us to understand our shared challenges, but also provide the opportunity to build partnerships which can begin to overcome them.
