As a new school year gets underway, we put that challenge to the superintendents of two of the largest public school districts in the United States; Alberto Carvahlo of Miami-Dade County Public Schools and Robert Runcie with Broward County Public Schools.

Both point to the introduction and continued expansion of Common Core standards as evidence of better connected classrooms to meet the needs of tomorrow's workforce.

  The Sunshine Economy series is sponsored by Kaufman Rossin and Companyone of Florida's largest independent accounting firms.
