During her 28 years as an educator, Michael Broad realized there was a problem with how students were being coached for the future. At the height of the No Child Left Behind legislation, she saw students being funneled into four-year colleges, but she realized only a small percentage who started college were graduating with a degree.

As a principal, she knew there were other viable options besides higher education, and she set about working to get students in pre-apprenticeships that taught the construction trade.
