More Talk Of A New Career Academy For LPS

LINCOLN -- You are hearing a lot about the academic benefits of a new career academy in Lincoln.  LPS Superintendent Dr. Steve Joel has called it "a game changer."  Assistant to the superintendent John Neal says a University of California study identified career academies as the No. 1 strategy for improving high school graduation rates across the country.  Students finish high school with up to a year of college credit.  The plan is to have the Lincoln academy up-and-running by 2015.  It also saves taxpayers money because they won't have to pay for a new high school.
