U.S. Work World is Moving
U.S. Work World, as an independent website is ending in July 2023.
Malware, technical issues, and keeping up with changes in software are beyond the scope of time and expense allotments. College & Career Publishing, serving classroom teachers since 1986, is closing shop as an independent entity.
U.S. Work World lessons are being updated for 2023-24 academic year, and transferred during August and September to a problem-free website that is maintained for classroom lesson creators: TeachersPayTeachers.com.
U.S. Work World opened a new “store” on TeachersPayTeachers website with the name US Work World Quick Tips Career Education Lessons. Lessons are being added to the new “store” as each is updated with the most current information available.

What is the History of College & Career Publishing?
College & Career Publishing was launched for the school year of 1986 as a monthly printed newletter booklet (16 pages) called California Work World, created for work experience teachers and career guidance technicians. California Work World newsletter was discontinued in 1995 due to the newsletter’s monthly printing and mailing costs. In its place, U.S. Work World was launched and provided as a once-a-year set of two three-ring notebooks with over 500 pages of lessons that could be taken to the copy machine and copied for students, staff, and parents of the purchasing school site. Inquiries from out-of-state teachers expanded College & Career Publishing nation wide as out-of-California teachers inquired about and purchased U.S. Work World for use in careers classes, vocational programs, continuation school programs, and some prisons. In 2002, the first U.S. Work World website was launched with lessons in PDF format that educators downloaded from the website and printed out. The shift to PDF web-based lessons, and the shift of printing costs from College & Career Publishing to the teacher’s printer enabled the yearly subscription price to drop. It is the goal of U.S. Work World to Prepare Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s Jobs with up-to-date and interesting, current event lessons and handouts that educators may use to supplement career education curriculums and share with staff and parents. U.S. Work World is not designed to be a stand-alone career education curriculum.
