In Governor Terry Branstad's 2017 Condition of the State Address, which he delivered to the Iowa General Assembly this morning, he drew attention to issues such as creating pathways to jobs of today and tomorrow, obtaining a 21st century education and skills for all students, and prioritizing initiatives designed to strengthen Iowa’s talent pipeline (e.g. STEM, the Future Ready Iowa Initiative, registered apprenticeships, and work-based learning opportunities.)
As we announced earlier today, the Iowa Department of Education selected Kuder Navigator® as the state's preferred career information and decision-making system. Navigator's research-based career assessments and comprehensive planning tools will support Iowa students' career development and ensure that Iowa schools and districts meet the objectives outlined by Governor Branstad.
