Many economists, business owners, and labor leaders have raised alarm about a rising skills gap in the United States between the jobs that are available and those with the skills needed to fill them. Job Centered Learning, which recently aired on PBS stations across the country, takes a critical look at the wide range of career technical education options some high schools across the U.S. are offering, engaging their students in life changing classroom experiences. This new one hour documentary has the potential to add to the national debate around both the vitality of our economy as well as the role schools can play in shaping how a new generation of students can find more meaningful educational experiences, fulfilling livelihoods and worthwhile careers.
Job Centered Learning is an ideal tool for schools to use in outreach and recruitment to students, parents, and teachers, partnerships with other schools and industry, fund raising, curriculum development and to influence local, state and national policy.
A three minute trailer of the film is available on YouTube.
Job Centered Learning is produced by award winning filmmaker Bob Gliner. Job Centered Learning is an ideal tool to use for discussions on developing curriculum as well as in helping promote CTE to potential students, parents, local business partners and policy makers.
