Overview

High School Is Not Enough is a salient and actionable guide confronting one of our nation's most pressing crises: the fact that many students leave K - 12 schools lacking in the skills and knowledge needed to prepare for today's and tomorrow's jobs and careers.

• An insider's view of higher education and training is given so students, parents and others are aware of what awaits them after high school.• Questions are given, helping students determine the skills and attitudes needed for tomorrow's jobs and careers. • Decision making strategies are offered, helping students understand which choices give them the best chance of success. • Tools and tips for saving time, money and energy, are provided affording students the knowledge needed to complete the programs and courses they require.

Every student needs education or training after high school. High School Is Not Enough is an indispensable new resource for helping students achieve that goal.

"In the past, those who did not continue their education or training after high school could always find a job that supported them and their families. And those who did continue could always count on that additional education and training to be the pathway for improving their lives. Today's students do not have either of those guarantees," R. Wayne Branch, PhD, writes.

High School Is Not Enough is a must read for high school students, parents, counselors, teachers, policy makers or anyone interested in student success.
