Center Offered: NWPD

Course Description:

Author Kevin Fleming, creator of the video Success in the New Economy, will help you, through his book Redefining the Goal, think differently about some of our educational policies and practices.  The final goal for our students is not graduation.  The goal is not a university degree.  Instead, the goal is “to prepare today’s students for a career that can support their family in tomorrow’s economy and to ensure our students are satisfied as they contribute to their local community.”  This concept aligns to Ohio’s One Goal that we increase yearly the number of students who one year after graduation are enrolled in college, employed the workforce, enlisted the military, or engaged in a self-sustaining vocation.  Join this book study to find your role in redefining the goal.
