Southwire "12 For Life" Education Partnership Program

Southwire "12 For Life" Education Partnership Program | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

Research shows that not graduating high school significantly limits employment options. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, those who drop out face an unemployment rate nearly 5 percent high than those with high school diplomas. They make an average of about $8,000 a year less, as well. The U.S. Census Bureau puts those gaps at closer to $10,000 and reports that nearly a third of dropouts live in poverty.
 
For a variety of reasons, a significant number of students doing poorly in school see dropping out as their only choice. Hoping to cut that number, Southwire and the Carroll County School System are working together on 12 for Life, an innovative program that places at-risk students in real jobs at Southwire, allowing them to earn wages while earning credit toward a diploma...Read More....

Coding in the Classroom: Here to Stay - Getting Smart | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it
The value of computer programming has been rising exponentially for decades. To the point where now coding has gained traction in mainstream media. TV shows like CBS’s The Big Bang Theory or HBO’s Silicon Valley are good indicators of computer science careers are taking center stage. The domino effect created by the demand for amazing technology is likewise leading to a demand for skilled workers to engineer and program. Whether training comes through a high school certificate program, or a degree in computer science, the need for project-ready coders is only increasing. The bottom-line: All schools at all levels are kicking coding into overdrive.
