Missouri is one of six states selected to participate in a new national education initiative to better prepare students for today's jobs.

Missouri Commissioner of Education Chris L. Nicastro said Tuesday the state was chosen to become a part of the Pathways to Prosperity Project created by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Jobs for the Future.

The aim of the program is to link educators with employers to develop realistic training that creates graduates who meet qualifications for today's jobs.

The five other states chosen to participate in the national initiative are Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Tennessee.
