BESE to consider career courses

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Nearly two dozen high school courses of study for nursing, carpentry, car repair and other jobs will be submitted to the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.

State Superintendent of Education John White says it's the first wave of Louisiana's overhaul of its career education system.

White says the new program, which is called Jump Start, is designed to give high school juniors and seniors a way to earn national industry credentials and a newly-crafted Jump Start Career Diploma.

BESE approved the overhaul in March.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1snSHPb ) the Legislature this year provided $12 million to boost career education.
