ATLANTA -- Here's a question: Did you know what career you wanted to pursure in night grade?
Next fall, all high school freshman in Georgia public schools will have to determine a career path and take classes tailored to that goal.
"The governor signed house bill 187 into law this past session, which mandates that we have career pathways for all students beginning in the fall of 2012," said State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge. "It's a national model. Many states are already using career clusters and career pathways."
There are 17 careers clusters and each one has a core of subjects students must take. The process is similar to working on a major in college. Students will have the opportunity to switch career pathways throughout their time in high school.
