Educators, experts discuss how Purdue Polytechnic High School is guiding graduates towards both higher education & STEM careers in an evolving economy
“Breaking the mold” has been a theme of The 74’s recent coverage of the “Future of High School,” and perhaps no school does that more aggressively than Purdue Polytechnic. The 74 and the Progressive Policy Institute recently hosted this in-depth conversation about the Indianapolis school’s efforts to prepare students for STEM-related postsecondary programs and high-tech careers.
