A case study of the impact of professional high school internshps on college and career readiness
The purpose of this qualitative case study was to explore the impact that professional high school internships have on college and career readiness. Educational systems, both public and private, continue to search for ways to improve postsecondary achievement. Research on this topic is limited; thus, this study aims to strengthen the body of literature and provide educational systems with insight and understanding of how high school internships impact postsecondary readiness. This study is significant, acting as a catalyst to encourage further research in educational systems where high school internships are used to cultivate professional skill building as a tool for successful skill retention in postsecondary experiences.
