Building the Pipeline: How Charter School Innovation Supports the Future of Work

In this session, we delve into the transformative potential of charter schools. Imagine a world where every student can select a school that not only imparts knowledge but also tailors’ instruction and career pathways to their unique interests, all while collaborating with potential employers. Unfortunately, our current K-12 education system lacks the ability to create such personalized instruction for students that prepares them for college and careers, especially in high-demand professions.

Enter charter schools—dynamic public schools with the autonomy and flexibility to design innovative programs. Building the Pipeline explores specific examples of charter schools revolutionizing education by offering customized instruction and opening doors to exciting career paths. We’ll spotlight examples from across the nation, focusing on STEM careers, advanced manufacturing, and nursing. Join us as we discuss the policies needed to replicate successful charter school models and prepare students for the future of work.
