Several House Republicans want the state to require that local school districts develop partnerships with local businesses so some high school students can graduate with on-the-job training.  The bill calls it  “work-based learning opportunities.”  The job program would linked to technical and career education with schools being encouraged to recruit students to don’t appear to be attending college upon graduation.

House Bill 450 would demand that any technical education funding, from the General Assembly, to help with job training programs be spent on the effort not be supplanted.  Even elementary school students would participate in career awareness programs which would touch on job choices and prepare the student for middle school.
