Education and training are extremely important elements of economic planning, but we know that their implementation doesn’t happen in a vacuum. We often talk about education and training programs as if they are the be-all-end-all of economic planning. There are a number of factors that make a decision to create a program very different than a decision to implement one, so it is important to think about how the program will be financed and who will be involved in the implementation.
Some programs do not require any form of financial input and so are more akin to “free” programs. One of our local educational programs is called the “Earning the Future” program which is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. It was created in the 1990s to help get students who had dropped out of school and gone to work for the first time to get on the path to college and then graduate from college.
Earning the Future is essentially “pay for success” in education programs. They are often funded by grants, private donations, and government contracts. To be eligible, students must have no more than a 3.5 GPA, or a GED. Students can complete the program if they have at least one year of college, or a 3.5 GPA, and a 2.75 ACT score.
Education and Training is the term that most people associate with the American Higher Education Reform Act, which passed in 1994. The act, which was created by the Kennedy administration, was aimed at helping students who had dropped out of school and gone to work for the first time. It is essentially pay for success in education programs. They are often funded by grants, private donations, and government contracts. To be eligible, students must have no more than a 3.5 GPA, or a GED.
Students who have dropped out of school and went to work for the first time will still get a score of 2.66.
In the past, if you didn’t have a GED, you were considered “low” income and therefore qualified for a Pell Grant, which is much more generous than a government program. In recent years, a large number of kids who dropped out of school have come back to school. They have the same GPA as before, but they’ve been taught better and have a better chance of succeeding in college.
You can get a good sense of how a kid from a school that had a GED had a great time. So now we can see that the kids who were in school who dropped out of school are not as lucky as they were at the time. Theyve been taught the same curriculum that the kids who dropped out of school had, and the same way that the kids who dropped out of school were able to continue to reach a new level of success.
And, not only is this a great way to ensure that kids keep learning, but the fact that the kids who dropped out of school have been treated with a curriculum that was designed to prepare them to succeed in college is just a bonus. Why? Because the schools that dropped out of school were the ones who had a better chance of succeeding.
Yes, these were the kids who dropped out of school. The ones who were most likely to drop out of school were the ones who were smart enough to know what to do in their situation. The ones who had the most to lose.
The problem with schools is that the kids who drop out, who don’t know what they are doing, are usually the ones who need the most help. They are the ones who are going to have to pay for college. You see, these kids were the children who had the most to lose. They had been bullied, and they were going to be humiliated. And then they would have to go to college to get bullied again and to be humiliated again.
