21st century education supports a focus on college and career readiness. Unfortunately, many schools focus more on the college side and neglect the career side. This creates gaps in graduating students' abilities to meet the demands of today's labor force.
According to a report by the Council of Chief State School Officers, "14.3% of 16–24-year-olds are unemployed, in spite of 4.8 million job openings (highest number of job openings since January 2001)." And it gets worse: the report goes on to indicate that "54% of American companies report having openings for which they cannot find qualified workers."
