What Parents & K-12 Educators Think About Non-Degree Pathways


Join ASA and JFF for a debut of two new research studies that uncover the perceptions of parents and educators on how prepared kids are for their post-high school education and career transition. For parents, learn how they feel if their kids don’t pursue a 2-year/4-year college after high school. For educators and counselors, understand how prepared they feel in offering advice on non-degree pathways to high school students. Introduction by Julie Lammers, SVP Advocacy and Corporate Social Responsibility, ASA, and Joel Vargas, Vice President of the Education Practice, JFF.
