Kansas Education Commissioner Seeks To Make Education More Responsive To Employment.

The Kansas City (MO) Star (10/7, Rose) reports Kansas Commissioner of Education Randy Watson on Tuesdayexplained the state needs to find a way for schools to balance academics with developing “employability skills,” although “That message, he said, is far from the No Child Left Behind model that schools have operated under for the last decade, where states set academic benchmarks related to reading levels and math scores and teachers taught to those standards.” According to Watson, “We realize this means we may have to redesign school” but “Maybe education needs to focus on the individual student and not the system.”
