High School academic transcripts and LERs don’t give employers and admission officers the full picture of who students are and what they know. If learning happens everywhere, how can we make sure students get credit for that learning? Durable skills and real-world experiences are rarely communicated well in applications and through resumes. Is there a better way? These panelists say yes, but it will take a village of educators, business leaders, and policy makers–to create a nationally recognized system for signaling quality and acquisition of skills that were once indicated only by a degree.
