Duncan Joins Calls to Reinvent Career Technical Education | College...Career...Tech Ed | Scoop.it
Recently, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan called for a renewed emphasis on career and technical education (CTE) in America's schools. Not the old "vocational" approach, where some students are tracked to enter a trade upon graduation from high school, while others are prepared to enter degree programs in college.
