City Voices February 2009: Career Education

Print More

Finding a job is tougher than ever, with unemployment rate hovering near 8 percent and unemployment claims on the rise. For young people, especially those with few job skills and experience, finding work can be virtually impossible. In CPS, about one in four high school students takes a career or technical education course, but few complete coursework that could lead to a good job. Guests: Greg Darnieder, CPS Department of College and Career Preparation; Carrie Thomas, Chicago Jobs Council.
