Libraries Partner with Local Airports

Libraries Partner with Local Airports | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

espite the recent recession, Hudson Group, which operates Hudson Newsstands in airports and other transit hubs around the country, has expanded its presence in America’s airports in recent years, opening more newsstand locations and taking over former Borders bookstores. But their limited selection, pricing, and lack of ebook offerings mean they’re not meeting the reading needs of all travelers. To fill that gap, libraries are seeking permission to land in airports around the world.

100 Awesome STEM Resources - Milk and Cookies

100 Awesome STEM Resources - Milk and Cookies | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
Why is STEM important? In short, the future job market will revolve around science. This includes all forms of technology, engineering and math. 80% of jobs in the future will require technology skills. Statistics today show that there will be a drastic shortage of job applicants in the next decade with the skills and knowledge to fill these new positions. While only 4% of the nation’s workforce is composed of scientists and engineers, this group creates jobs for the other 96% of the workforce (source). The average professional with a STEM-related degree earns more than double the average national wage. About 3 million jobs are currently unfilled because Americans lack the basic STEM skills needed for the positions (source).

When writing an IEP for a student, are you considering their career path- especially if they are at the secondary level? School social workers teach these skills everyday.  Are they appropriately identified and articulated?

SageRave's curator insight, May 27, 2:15 PM

Alot of these skills cannot be taught. Your B.A., MBA., or Ph.D.may not give you the edge you thought they might.
