Issue Position: Ensuring that Kansas Education is Flexible in Order to Meet the Needs of Today's Students and The Future Needs of Our Workforce

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

The State Board of Education has adopted higher academic standards to better prepare our students for success after high school. We need equal focus on helping our students attain non-academic skills in order to be successful in the workforce. More students must complete some post-secondary education in order to meet our workforce needs. By 2020, it is estimated that 71% of all jobs in Kansas will require some post-secondary education. We need more students to fill the gap that we're currently seeing across the State.

Non-academic skills, such as critical thinking, perseverance, and social-emotional ability affect the ability of students to be successful in post-education and in the workforce. We must put more emphasis on this in K-12 education.
