From the Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE), this report, Schools Lead the Way but the System Must Change: Rethinking Career and Technical Education looks at 32 programs around the country that represent the variety of efforts being used to reinvent CTE. The authors profile district schools, charter schools, after-school programs, and a tuition-free independent school. Some started in the early 1900s, others opened their doors just a few years ago. The range of models provides a glimpse into the diverse ways educators across the country are attempting to reinvent career pathways. This information is important to adult educators working in career pathways too, as we look to maximize CTE resources for the benefit of K-12 and adult learners.
Do you know of any examples of CTE programs supporting both K-12 and adult learner populations? If so, please share them with us so that we can learn more from their collaboration.
