Grand Island Public Schools in Nebraska opened an $8 million center dedicated to enhancing career education and covers careers in manufacturing, drafting and other trades. It also is the first such center in the state. "We have to do a better job in public education, I believe, in orienting kids to career. We want to connect kids to something that interests them," said Steve Joel, superintendent of the Lincoln Public Schools, which will open a similar facility in two years.
