[IN Q=The reason we start]

((CRYSTAL TAYLOR/CAREER EDUCATION DIRECTOR: THE REASON WE START WITH EIGHTH GRADE IS BECAUSE WE OFFER THE PROGRAMS IN HIGH SCHOOL. WE OFFER SOME OF THE PROGRAMS TO HELP THEM BECOME A TELLER, TO HELP THEM BECOME ENGINEERS, TO HELP THEM BECOME ARCHITECTS AND IF THEY WAIT UNTIL HIGH SCHOOL THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE A PLAN.))

In preparation for the Standards- of- Learning- Test, students will complete a writing assignment about the job of their choice. This is the first time city schools have held a career day for eighth graders, but educators hope it will become an annual event.
