Business and educational leaders agree that more needs to be done to encourage Michigan high school students to consider pursuing careers in skilled trades.

An Educational Development Plan (EDP) is a document school counselors develop showing a student's education and career goals, and a way to achieve them.

Lawmakers are discussing two bills that would require schools to provide students with more career information and help create a talent portfolio for every student.
