Today’s National Post has an interesting article covering a speech by John Manley, the CEO of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives.  What I found interesting is that employers are seeking graduates with the types of 21st century skills being pursued by Alberta’s education system – communications, analysis, problem-solving, leadership, in addition to strong literacy and numeracy.  I am cheered by his point that business wishes to collaborate with educational institutions, something I am advocating for Edmonton Public Schools.
