Session 403: Tranforming Career and Technical Education for the Global Economy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The traditional two-track model of college-prep and vocational education is being replaced by an array of ways to make all high school students more college- and career-ready. They range from seamless integration of the core curriculum with a grounding in career studies to career-themed learning communities or “academies” within schools to entire high schools dedicated to a career field. And increasingly, students are participating in off-site internships and apprenticeships during the school day. This panel will explore some of the new initiatives to create high school career pathways of studies in strategic industries in various cities and states.
