My Two Cents: Career Skills And MCPS

Joseph Hawkins
In a recent publication, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Joshua Starr wrote, “…industry leaders are telling us that our graduates don’t have skills like perseverance, teamwork and creative problem solving that are so important in the 21-century workplace.”
When reading Starr’s entire essay, one realizes he is not just writing about MCPS high school graduates, but high school graduates in general.
But what do these skills really entail? How much can a public school system do to instill those skills and should that be where our focus is?

  1. So what is Mr. Starr actively doing to ensure that the MCPS students become indeed star performers?
