Abstract

This book chapter details two ideas that would connect college programs with career pathways: aligning curriculum to promote the development of skills with labor market value and connecting transcript data from colleges with wage records to determine the economic value of college programs. This book chapter, commissioned by the IBM Center for the Business of Government, appears in Governing to Win: Enhancing National Competitiveness Through New Policy and Operating Approaches edited by Charles L. Prow.
