As we re-evaluate grading policies (move to content based), the implementation of CCRS (college and career readiness standards) and CTE (Career Technical Education) courses at secondary, we must consider the new the trajectory of our students.  There has been a tangible shift over the past decade away from just "graduation" but instead, we focus on our students leaving public education with a specific skill set ready to purposefully contribute to their community with a bona-fide, genuine capacity.    The concept of Micro-credentialling aligns with this shift and makes sense for educators and students.
