Karen Pittman engaged in a provocative discussion with two thought leaders about some of the big readiness traps found not only in schools, but most of our public systems – traps that lead to too many young people “doing their time” but leaving with gaps in their readiness for college, work or life. Karen interviewed Stephanie Krauss, senior fellow for the Forum for Youth Investment, and Bryan Joffe, director of education and youth development at AASA.
