21st Century Skills

Along with representatives of the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, I spent a day visiting schools in Green Lake and Fond du Lac to learn about innovative programs to better prepare students for the job market which they will eventually join. 

In Green Lake I toured classes and learned about the implementation of the International Baccalaureate program.  In Fond du Lac teachers, administrators and business people presented information about the Fond du Lac Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program.
