Six Essential Strategies for Creating Effective State Career Pathway Systems
While hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent on education reform, relatively few resources have been devoted to career development — and the costs of this neglect are staggering.

They framed the discussion around six core elements, which can be explored by accessing the report below.
Pathways to Prosperity
William Symonds, the director of Global Pathways Institute, had primary responsibility for preparing the report while serving as director of the Pathways to Prosperity Project at Harvard from 2008-2013.
The report highlighted our national failure to prepare many young Americans to lead successful lives as adults. It argued that we could reverse this failure if we worked together to forge pathway systems that would more effectively prepare young people for economic independence.
