• Why It's Important to Start Career Education in Elementary School
     
    Children may do better in school if they can see how education is connected to a successful future.
     
     
    You can help your child:
     

    *Discover the variety of jobs available to him or her
    *Connect what he or she is learning in school to real-world situations
    *Begin viewing himself or herself in an occupation
    *Develop work-readiness skills such as working in teams, making decisions, solving problems and being a leader.
