ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
Harvard Political Review published an article making the case for Career Technical Education as an important option for students who want a pathway to a successful career: “Students often leave CTE programs with certifications that allow them to immediately enter the workforce. Surprisingly, some see this as CTE’s greatest failing. Yes, welders might make up to $140,000 dollars a year, but how can the government support “condemning” students to blue-collar labor? The reasoning of many against CTE programs seems misguided at best.”
