East Baton Rouge Parish school superintendent John Dilworth just stepped into office, and he says he's ready to make some major changes.
Dilworth layed out plans for the school system, with high hopes of dropping the area's drop-out rate.
Recently, the school board allocated $18 million to build a career education center.
Dilworth says this is just one of many ways the school system will try to better prepare students for the real world.
