Remaking Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century: What Role for High School Programs? - This report contains a research review that examines what is and isnít known about the value of high school career-focused education, which includes career and technical education (CTE) as traditionally conceived, as well as more recent innovations that put careers and occupation-oriented knowledge at the center of school life. The research review is followed by a collection of seven essays looking forward to where CTE will go rather than back to what past research has found. [Free registration required to access report.] (Richard Kazis, with essays by Elliott A. Medrich, Betsy Brand, Governor Mark Warner, Ross Wiener, Gene Bottoms, Katharine M. Oliver and Katherine L. Hughes, Jobs for the Future, April 2005)...
