high school equivalency

There's a labor shortage, but are there jobs for people who only hold a h.s. diploma or equivalency certificate?

Colleagues,

The Executive Director of a Boston-based college and career readiness organization that serves high school students through the use of a blended learning approach, Gary Kaplan, has a blog entitled "Labor Shortage Continues. 99% of Jobs Go to College Graduates." In it he documents that in some parts of the country employers are not hiring people who only have high school diplomas.

Is the Adult Education and Literacy System in the U.S. Prepared to Unlock the Door to Economic Opportunity?

CCR Standards Colleagues,

I have published a new Adult Literacy Education blog article entitled, "Is the Adult Education and Literacy System in the U.S. Prepared to Unlock the Door to Economic Opportunity?" in which I argue that it is not. I would be interested to have your reactions, either here or as comments on the blog itself, which you will find at http://davidjrosen.wordpress.com
