Schools that Work

Center for an Urban Future

Most people believe that attending a normal high school is the only way to get to college, but the Center for an Urban Future believes that career and technical education (CTE) high schools are a valuable resource for some students and can help many get into college. CTE programs help students prepare for careers in various fields, from dental lab technician to aircraft mechanic. The report details the decline of CTE programs, specifically in the New York area, and offers recommendations for public officials, teachers and researchers. Steps to improve CTE programs include embracing them as an equal path for high school students, providing proper funding and tracking post-high school outcomes of CTE graduates. Free, 32 pages.
