Kansas City’s new model for job skills training in education
The nature of work is changing, and our education system isn’t doing a good job of preparing students for the jobs of today. A new model of skills-based education launching in Kansas City is designed to solve this problem.
Kansas City is a place known for flat land and flat dialects. It’s not the first city that comes to mind when one thinks of cutting-edge innovation. But the Kansas City-based Kauffman Foundation is launching a noteworthy new educational startup called the Skilled KC Technical Institute in early 2020. It’s a project that thoroughly reimagines the pathway from school to employment.
