Career pathways (CP) has gained prominence as a strategy to ensure that high school students and displaced workers acquire the college and career readiness skills needed in a fast-changing, globalized economy. In an effort to ensure future success for CP, Stephen F. Hamilton examines the School-to-Work (STW) movement of the 1980s and 1990s and explores how the lessons learned from that campaign’s demise can pave the way for a CP program that endures and serves the most deserving.

Praise

Stephen Hamilton’s ambitious book about career pathways will be essential for everyone interested in building an education system that can prepare all students for both careers and further education. He argues that this crucial effort requires a system based on a partnership of employers, educational systems at all levels, civic institutions, and policy makers. — Thomas Bailey, president, Teachers College, Columbia University, and director emeritus and senior fellow, Community College Research Center
