    Pathways to Prosperity Project: Meeting the Challenge of Preparing Young Americans for the 21st Century

    Pathways to Prosperity Project: Meeting the Challenge of Preparing Young Americans for the 21st CenturyPublished by Harvard Graduate School of Education, 2011

    The report argues that the current education system is too narrowly focused on preparing young people to pursue four-year degrees immediately after high school, while other postsecondary routes to careers might suit students better.

    The report focuses on three essential elements to address the skills gap:

    • Development of a broader vision of school reform that incorporates multiple pathways to carry young people from high school to adulthood

    • Development of a much expanded role for employers in supporting these new pathways
    • Development of a new social compact between society and its young people
