This report lays out the case for career and technical education (CTE) in New York City. It examines 21 dedicated CTE high schools, the interests and needs of a business community eager to support career-oriented education, and the performance, problems and promise of a vein of educational programming whose time might finally be at hand. The report finds that New York City's long overlooked and under-funded career and technical education high schools might hold the key to improving citywide educational outcomes and ensuring a steady stream of skilled workers for local employers. (Contains 1 table, 1 chart, and 18 endnotes.) [Funding was provided by provided by the Independence Community Foundation, JPMorgan Chase Foundation, and the New York Community Trust.]
