State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz took a quick tour Thursday of one of Jackson County’s major educational assets — the Jackson County Learning Center.
She was impressed by what she saw.
The facility’s new advanced manufacturing and science labs help fulfill a need Ritz said she sees in communities across the state for more options when it comes to postsecondary education and career training.
“We want all kids on the path to taking some form of postsecondary training or education,” she said.
Ritz said she and the Indiana Department of Education are working with Hoosier educators and business and industry leaders to identify and create different career “pathways” for students, offering classes they need to be successful in those careers.
