Will the High School Graduating Class of 2021 be the Largest in US History?
NJ MED's sixth US Signing Day Pledge ends for the High School Graduation Class of 2021 on Saturday.
The signing day period ends for the class of 2021 on Saturday, January 20, 2018, after beginning on November 25, 2017. The signing day pledges and host day information toolkit are available free at NJ MED's website.
NJ MED's founder and CEO, Mr. Albert Mitchell II, said, "The Class of 2021 represents the United States highest percentage of high school graduates in history. Educators, organizations, and businesses have been working with America's Promise to reach a 90% graduation rate by 2020. Unfortunately, we may fall short by 1 to 2 percent in 2020, but reaching that mark in 2021, looks good."
Mr. Mitchell, added, "It more than graduating with just a high school diploma. It is about moving America forward in the economy and the work skill climate of the 21st century. Not only will our future workforce have to compete with other countries for jobs. We have to create a future workforce that can stay ahead of technological abilities in robotics and artificial intelligence for new created jobs."
