Today's show welcomes Bob Dockendorf, high school principal from Big Lake School District. Bob shares an important vision he is spearheading in regards to post-secondary education. Listen in as Bob talks about how the vision has become a working plan, a seven step plan,  on creating a systemic shift in preparing high school graduates for not just college, but vocational training as well.  He shares information on utilizing experiential training, job shadowing, and other intentional steps to give our kids  a more involved look at career paths. An important piece of accomplishing this is creating a system for educators to become acclimated to this shift in how we prepare kids for success in life.
