The focus of this book is the plight of many students in United States high schools who face an unpromising future on graduation. Written for students, teachers and parents, Other Ways to Win stresses that alternatives to college do exist for entering the labour market, many of which offer a higher probability of success. It argues that the key to future economic security is not education per se but obtaining the occupational skills that lead to high skills//high-wage work. The authors conclude with suggested strategies for high schools to adopt in order to improve students' preparation to meet an uncertain future.
