K12’s Leilani M. Brown, Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, delivered closing remarks at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s 2019 Talent Forward event in Washington, DC on October 24.
K-12 education has not changed much over the last several decades. It certainly hasn’t kept pace with the change of business. Yet we as a society have a crazy expectation that our students enter life after high school and survive and thrive with pretty much the same set of interests, competencies, and capabilities as we did some 20 to 30 years ago. What if we gave high school students a jump-start on their college and career aspirations while they earn their high school diploma – virtually, in-person, or both? Leilani makes the case for a differentiated student experience.
