CTE Delivers Leaders
Magnuson, Peter
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v88 n2 p34-35 Feb 2013
Imagine a football team without a quarterback. Imagine a ship without a captain. Imagine a kitchen without a chef. Right now, you are probably running a number of worst-case scenarios through your head: a losing season; a ship adrift; some not-so-tasty cookies. The reason your mind has conjured up these end results is because in each of these examples the leader is missing. Within the education system, career and technical education (CTE) is a vital component in the development of tomorrow's leaders. In its latest Issue Brief, "CTE's Role in Leadership Development," ACTE highlights the variety of ways CTE prepares students to be leaders in the classroom, in the school and in business. Noted herein is that CTE programs and related initiatives foster future leaders by teaching students to lead through in-class and associated leadership training, by placing students in workplace contexts where they observe leadership in action and by empowering students in authentic leadership roles. (Contains 9 endnotes.)
