The Role of School Culture in Improving Student Achievement in POS
Sundell, Kirsten; Castellano, Marisa; Overman, Laura T.; Aliaga, Oscar A.
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v87 n1 p28-31 Jan 2012
Over the past five years, the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education (NRCCTE) has sponsored five research studies of Programs of Study (POS)--including three ongoing longitudinal projects--with the goal of informing the field about how and under what conditions POS impact student engagement, achievement, and transition to postsecondary education and employment. Programs of Study, mandated under Perkins IV, increase program accountability in the areas of academic achievement, technical skills achievement, and alignment with postsecondary education. In this article, the authors describe how district and school policies, practices, and cultures support the implementation of POS in two districts and three schools that are part of a longitudinal study.
