Students Need Both Academic, Career Technical Education
To capitalize on this, most schools are implementing one-to-one programs, where each student has their own laptop or tablet. While it is imperative that students have these resources to compete in an ever-evolving job market, we must also ensure that they have career and technical skills to thrive in a vocation.
It would be a disservice to place students in a course of study that focuses mostly on vocational skills or academic subjects. It is time that we recognize the value and importance of focusing on both vocation and academic skills. Students who are mastering these subjects will truly be prepared for college or a vocational path after they graduate from high school.
