WRVA Interview: Virginia is for Learners
On April 29th, we officially launched the Virginia is for Learners initiative. This broad partnership of state and local education agencies, advocacy organizations across the Commonwealth and the Virginia business community is dedicated to supporting the changes Virginia is making to Pre-K-12 education and educating the public about how they will benefit students and our economy.
The future of work is changing. More than ever, modern jobs require workers who can successfully combine strong content knowledge with the skills it takes to apply that knowledge in a real world environment. The changes Virginia is making to public education will ensure that a high school diploma is a promise to students and their future employers that they are ready to succeed in the working world.
I was pleased to have the opportunity to speak with John Reid at News Radio WRVA on Friday, May 3, about Virginia is for Learners and what it means for every student in the Commonwealth.
Take a few minutes to listen in on the interview and follow the education community on Twitter using #VAis4Learners.
