This has been touted by state educators for the past few years since Senate Bill 1 in 2009 forced the education system to adapt and meet the demand of Kentucky's changing economic realities.

The shift has also meant a change in programs and partnerships between the public education system and the private sector.

Louisville Public Media 89.3 WFPL News hosted a public forum to discuss, "The Shift to Career Ready: What this Means for Students and the Role of Private Business." 

Panelists include Debbie Anderson with the JCPS Career and Technical Education department; James Stone, Director National Research Center for Career & Technical Education located at the University of Louisville; and Tom Hudson, CEO and President of Nth Works, a company partner of JCPS.
