Secondary Career and Technical Education and Comprehensive School Reform: Implications for Research and Practice
Castellano, Marisa; Stringfield, Sam; Stone, James R., III
Review of Educational Research, v73 n2 p231-272 2003
In the 1990s, federal legislation authorizing funding for secondary vocational education, increasingly called career and technical education (CTE), began to mandate accountability requirements such as improved academic achievement. These requirements have necessitated a search for ways to integrate CTE into broader school reforms that have improved student achievement as their goal. This review examines research on the effects of CTE reform efforts in general and on efforts to meld CTE with comprehensive secondary school reforms. The authors found that the intersection of CTE with comprehensive school reform is under-researched. However, the studies reviewed here reveal the potential benefit for research and practice in re-examining CTE as a means of preparing our nation's youth for the future.
