The news about the new national curriculum comes as teachers and parents nationwide are grappling with the challenge of preparing their kids for college.
Here’s how to prepare your kids for the 21st century.

Its aim is to “strengthen our schools and make America great again.”
But many parents and educators, including teachers, parents, and parents themselves, are uneasy about how to best prepare children for college and careers, especially in the wake of the Great Recession and the rise of the online world.
While there are no specific recommendations for what the new curriculum should look like, Trump’s proposal makes several proposals aimed at making college more affordable and easier to get to.
For starters, the Trump administration wants to make it easier for students to pay for college tuition, as well as help students pay for loans and grants.
The goal is to help students get degrees and help them start paying their bills.
In addition, Trump has asked that colleges and universities provide a more “comprehensive” education, including online classes and an expanded curriculum that will include subjects like geography, history, and math.
“What we’re proposing is a comprehensive, high-quality, and highly accessible national curriculum that includes a number of topics that have never been part of a traditional education,” said Laura Wysocki, a professor at the University of Michigan.
Wysockie said the new program should be designed around the ideas of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and math and science education, and focus on making it easier to achieve a college degree.
“In order to be able to go to college, you have to be motivated,” Wysocksi said.
“I think we need to think about how you prepare for those things.
The more we focus on that, the better off we’re going to be in the long run.”
The National Center for Education Statistics estimated that the number of students attending college increased by 5.6 million in the first three months of this year, from 2.5 million to 3.3 million.
However, Wysonski noted that that number is likely undercounted.
“I think it’s a big number,” she said.
In a report published last month, the nonpartisan Center for American Progress found that the percentage of students in private colleges attending college, and not public ones, increased by 9 percent from 2016 to 2017.
That number has continued to increase.
In the first quarter of this 2017, it rose from 9 percent to 13 percent.
In March 2017, the Department of Education released data showing that the share of public high school graduates who completed a college-level course in math and statistics in the 2016-2017 school year increased from 15 percent to 22 percent.
The number of public students who were admitted to colleges rose from 6 percent to 9 percent.
And while public schools have seen a dramatic rise in enrollment, the average age of students enrolled at a public high-school increased from 17.5 years old in 2016 to 21.7 years old this year.
That compares with an average age at graduation of 17.4 years old for students at the lowest-performing schools.
In an op-ed in the New York Times, the education secretary, Betsy DeVos, argued that the “long-term goal” of the national education reform is to give students the tools to graduate from college.
The Trump administration has made clear that its goal is not just to increase enrollment but also make it affordable and accessible.
“If we are to achieve this goal, we must make college more accessible, and the nation must provide better options for students,” DeVos wrote.
The new national education system also aims to “reform how the nation prepares for jobs, jobs and jobs,” Wiesocki said, citing new guidelines for employers that they must include in their recruiting and hiring policies.
For example, an employer may have to pay a company’s legal expenses if it hires someone without a college education.
The Obama administration also made a number proposals to improve access to college.
For instance, in March 2016, the president announced a new “College for All” initiative to increase the number and quality of colleges and help lower the cost of attendance for students.
And in August, President Trump announced the creation of the National Scholarships for America, a $1.6 billion federal scholarship program aimed at helping students pay off their student loans and save for college, according to the White House.
The Trump administration also is expected to roll out a new $3 billion “school choice” program, designed to provide low- and moderate-income families with financial aid to help them attend more schools.
This program is aimed at improving graduation rates for low-income students and providing a more affordable path to college for those who need it.
“There are some things the Trump education agenda has promised to deliver on, but the reality is that
