Tuesday, September 2, 2014

According to the Texas Education Agency, more than 300,000 Generation Z students are entering Texas high schools this year, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. These teenagers are facing pressures this fall to figure out their futures, and fast. New state education rules require incoming freshmen to start the school year with specific plans of coursework already geared to their eventual careers. Melanie McGee, director for corporate relations for UT Arlington's College of Business, said people often resemble their times more than their parents. McGee studies generational differences and says understanding them helps in the workplace, where various generations come together every day.
