According to the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education, a "promising practice is any technique used that has a positive impact on students and has some data to support the claims made." Sources of this data range from experimental research to district- or state-level data analysis, but they must provide justification for the success of the program or practice. In the current policy environment, having data to show the impact of career and technical education (CTE) programs is critical--particularly outcome data in the key areas that policymakers are concerned about. This article looks at three such programs: (1) FastTRAC in Minnesota; (2) the Tennessee Technology Centers; and (3) how the career academy model has turned around New Britain High School, located in New Britain, Connecticut.
