Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
Within the IT industry, there are a variety of entry-level jobs that pay well and provide opportunities for advancement — jobs for high school graduates with postsecondary training or education but less than a four-year college degree. Although there is no one pathway students need to take to be on track for a good job in the IT sector, completing a two-year postsecondary program, passing an industry-recognized certification and even receiving extensive on-the-job training are all potential avenues to employment.
