State Education Boards Develop New Post-High School Readiness Definition

Massachusetts’s Board of Higher Education voted to accept a new definition of post-high school readiness, encompassing skills and qualities ranging from reading comprehension to the ability to receive direction and criticism in the workplace. The board’s decision marks the first time the two committees overseeing the state’s K-12 school system and public colleges and universities have formally agreed on what it takes to be prepared for life after high school.
