No Child Left Behind: Implications for Career and Technical Education
Chadd, Julie; Drage, Karen
Career and Technical Education Research, v31 n2 p79-99 2006
High school principals and career and technical education (CTE) teachers throughout Illinois were subjects of this study which described principals' and CTE teachers' perceptions of the impact the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 has had on high school CTE programs. Findings indicated principals and teachers collectively disagreed with "No Child Left Behind has had a positive impact on the image of CTE at your school." Both groups also agreed CTE courses can help schools meet the goals of "all students will reach high standards, at a minimum of attaining proficiency or better in reading and mathematics" and "all students will graduate from high school." However, a statistically significant difference between the groups was found with "No Child Left Behind has had a positive impact on CTE enrollment at your school." Findings indicated while the principals agree, the teachers conversely disagreed with the statement. (Contains 2 tables.)
