The national discourse on high school reform is increasingly focused on the role of career and technical education in preparing all students for success in both postsecondary education and the workforce. High schools are moving away from the stand-alone vocational courses of the past, into which students with lower academic achievement or perceived potential were often channeled. Our Pathways goal is to link career-technical education, rigorous academic coursework, and experiences that show students the relevance of education to their future, while teaching them the academic and employability skills they need to be successful in both college and career.
