The America Achieves Educator Networks work, in targeted locations, to increase the number of students who have access to and complete a quality education pathway that leads to career and life success.
America Achieves Educator Networks work with innovative educators and schools to increase the number of students who have access to and complete a quality education pathway that leads to career and life success. We empower educators to be champions of change, ensuring that reforms happen with them and not to them. We help build the education-to-employment field by identifying, supporting, and sharing evidence-based models and best practices. We aim to build a shared vision of 21st century learning and work to ensure all young people have access to education and economic opportunity.
"We need to make sure students are mastering challenging core content; being exposed to specific skills that align with their career aspirations and industry demands; and developing key transferable 21st century employability skill - from critical thinking and resource management to a range of interpersonal skills.”
— Heidi Ramírez, Executive Director of Educator Networks at America Achieves
The America Achieves Educator Networks has released its first white paper. Getting Real about Career-Readiness: A Focus on Cross-Sector Competencies is the first in a series of multi-media white papers on promising education practices for preparing students for the changing world of work. It reflects both the learning and questions that emerged in planning for and participating in the GLN 2017 convening and America Achieves’ ongoing interaction with the schools, expert participants, and our partners in related projects.
