Time to Give CTE What It Deserves -- R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Gammill, Deidra M.
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n6 p17-20 Mar 2015
A former English teacher becomes a Teacher Academy instructor in a high school career and technical education department and learns of the bias against CTE [career-technical education] programs and students, which are stigmatized for supposedly lacking rigor and strong students. Such perceptions are outmoded, the author says, because CTE is much more rigorous these days and today's employers need workers with the technical skills and training that CTE students acquire.
