Senator Sherrod Brown is proposing legislation to help high school students prepare for careers.

His proposed bill would help grow and develop apprenticeship programs in Ohio and across the country.

Brown says the Apprenticeship Hubs Across America Act would give students a step to a high paying job.

“Too many students don’t realize apprenticeships can be a way for them to get their foot in the door and train for good jobs where they can build careers.”

The Ohio House’s Education Committee will consider a bill in the new year to clear-up the state’s definition of a full-time equivalent student. The bill comes as the Ohio Supreme Court continues to consider the appeal of an online school over the issue.
