Document Number: 9166Pathways to Prosperity: Meeting the Challenge of Preparing Young Americans for the 21st Century - This report argues that our national strategy for education and youth development has been too narrowly focused on an academic, classroom-based approach. Meanwhile, many other advanced industrial nations are succeeding with a broader, more holistic approach that places greater emphasis on career and technical education and work-based learning. The authors contend that in order to regain the educational leadership we held for more than a century, the United States must build a more comprehensive network of pathways to serve youth in high school and beyond.
