  4. Global Economy • Everything is connected • Work gets done anytime, any place • Shrinking job market • Automation of labor • “Offshoring” • Baby boomers retiring • Knowledge and skills gap • Technology integrated into every sector ~Frank Benest, COABE April 18, 2011 Aligning Adult Education with the Global Economy 4

  5. Global Economy: Job Market Imbalances By 2030 worldwide there may be: • Surplus of 38 million low-skill workers • Unemployment • Stagnating wages • Shortage of 45 medium-skill workers • Shortage of 90 million highly-skilled workers ~The world at work: Jobs, pay and skills for 3.5 billion people. McKinsey Global Institute 2012

  6. Global Economy: Implications for Education • Accelerating changes • Budget cuts to education • Students eager to learn: • English as a Second Language • High school subjects • Academic, Workplace and Life Skills • Content Knowledge 6

  7. College Readiness Despite well meaning efforts, it is estimated that the states spend $3 billion yearly as 1.7 million students enter college remediation programs…. …… few of these students emerge as college graduates. • Students should be college-ready upon graduating high school ~ Remediation: Higher Education’s Bridge to Nowhere, Complete College America, 2012

  10. OCTAE: The Need for Post-Secondary and Career Education In modern times, adults cannot succeed and be economically self-sufficient without some level of post-secondary education. About 90 percent of the fastest growing jobs of the future will require education or training beyond high school. ~OCTAE (Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education) 10

  11. Retooling Education and America’s Workforce Education beyond high school and skills acquisition is the passport to the American dream. ~Michael Gallo, Passport to Prosperity, CCAE State Conference, 2014

  12. What is the solution ? • Proposal: Adopt college- and career-ready standards to ensure high and consistent expectations and outcomes for K-12 and adult education students. ~ College Completion Tool Kit , U.S. Department of Education 2011 12

  13. Common Core State Standards 13

  14. Common Core State Standards: Background Information • College and career readiness standards • Supported by 43 states & the District of Columbia • Balanced between content and skills • Research and evidence-based • Aligned with college and work expectations • Internationally benchmarked • Focused on student outcomes • Adapted by OCTAE in the College and Career Readiness (CCR) standards for adult education ~ Common Core State Standards: Preparing America’s Students for College and Career 2012

  16. College and Career Readiness Standards (CCR) CCR Focus on Literacy Instruction (ELA Literacy) 3 key areas of shift in emphasis: • Complexity: texts are more complex, use more academiclanguage and vocabulary • Evidence: • Reading-citeevidence, analyze information • Writing-conductresearch, analyze sources • Speaking/listening-academic talk based on readings • Knowledge: students read across disciplines (nonfictional texts); students read informational texts to develop contentknowledge ~Pimental, S. 2013 College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education 16
