NCRVE in the News: You Read It Here First!

We've been enjoying quite a bit of press in educational publications in recent months. David Stern, NCRVE's Director, is quoted in California Educator, Education Week, and Techniques on topics such as the World Wide Web's influence on student businesses, evaluation of a school reform network, and the rationale behind the school-to-work movement. His report, School-to-Work Policy Insights from Recent International Developments, has been reviewed in a number of educational publications, including School-to-Work Report, Career Pathways Report, and School-to-Work Reporter. You may have also seen other recent NCRVE products featured, such as the all aspects of the industry report (MDS-885), our training package Getting to Work, and the just-released School-to-Work for the College Bound.
