Kentucky leads the nation in implementing college and career ready standards.
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.
What is the best use of business now? And what does a career-ready student look like here in Kentucky, and across the country?
Louisville Public Media 89.3 WFPL News will host 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.
Forum is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Reserve your seat here.
When: 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 9
Where: Performance Studio at Louisville Public Media, 619 S. Fourth St.
