Parents have questions, and so do students, about what it takes to be ready – for the next grade, for college, or life after high school. MCEC, with support from the GE Foundation, produced “The Learning Skills Toolbox,” a series of videos that tackle learning and readiness at several stages. The series of six videos includes discussion with students who have special needs and interviews with educators and administrators at the high school and college levels. Great tips for any parent, student, and lifelong learner! Watch the videos and take the survey.
