Create System Incentives and Supports for Connection of CTE and High School Redesign Efforts
Hyslop, Alisha
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers, v82 n4 p33-35 Apr 2007
The eighth recommendation in the Association for Career and Technical Education's (ACTE's) high school reform position statement is to create system incentives and supports for connection of career and technical education (CTE) and high school redesign efforts. In many states and school districts, CTE leaders are providing the major impetus and resources for rethinking the instructional and organizational design of the traditional high school. However, in some locales, superintendents, school leaders, and school reform advocates are reportedly overlooking the role of CTE in providing meaning, relevance and experience in deeply contextualized learning of subject matter. This oversight will limit the effectiveness and impact of the high school redesign agenda. This article examines recommendations made in ACTE's high school reform position statement and highlights best practices for implementation.
