Following the keynote address, Secretary Perez participates in a discussion moderated by Ron Brownstein, Atlantic Media's Editorial Director, on investing in the life-cycle of students and workers so that they have the skills to compete.
Secretary Perez and Ron Brownstein discuss recently announced Youth CareerConnect grants that will help redesign America's high schools for today's economy.
