Celebrating CTE Month 2008: ACTE Tours McKinley Technical High School
Kidwai, Sabrina
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v83 n5 p42-43 May 2008
A delegation of visitors descended on McKinley Technical High School in Washington, D.C., on February 19 for Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month. ACTE staff, several congressional staffers, staff from SkillsUSA, FCCLA and the District of Columbia Department of Career and Technical Education visited the school--a public charter which offers three themed pathways in biomedical, information, and broadcast technologies. Students provided a guided tour and answered questions about their areas of study. The group observed classes in each theme and students demonstrated lessons and projects they are working on in the classroom. The visiting group got a firsthand look at how students are learning at the school, and how CTE is having a positive impact on students and their community.
