Two hearings will be held this month by the New Jersey Department of Education’s College and Career Readiness Task Force.

Education officials say the goal of the hearings is to get input from the public on educating students to the level of college and career readiness.

The task force is comprised of a group of K-12 and higher education practitioners and business community representatives. They are charged with determining the skills and knowledge students need to be “college and career ready,” and to ensure that the state has the appropriate graduation requirements and high school assessments in place to evaluate the mastery of these readiness standards.

The first hearing will be conducted on December 13 at 5pm in the Student Community Center-Davidson Room at the County College of Morris. The second hearing will be held on December 15 at 5pm in the New Campus Center at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.

The task force plans to release a final report of recommendations to the New Jersey Department of Education by December 31, 2011.
