The postsecondary system has been asked to adopt the charter of career education, but it has resisted this mandate from students, business leaders, and even the President of the United States. This central demand to recognize the need for career education affected a diverse group of players in education and ultimately pushed all edtech companies to adapt to this trend. Drost’s keynote presentation will advise attendees on how the ALP phenomenon has influenced this product pivot in the edtech sector.
