P-Tech High School/Early College Offers CTE with Business Connections
Education Week profiles the continued advancement with career training in high schools by focusing on the Pathways in Technology Early College High School in Brooklyn. The technology-based curriculum was developed in conjunction with local universities and the corporation IBM to foster a better path for students. Students at P-Tech can earn an associate degree while in high school, and they can potentially parlay that into a job with IBM or other technology companies. We desperately need this sort of business-education partnership committed to innovation and design oriented thinking. And, it is happening across the country in places like the High Tech High schools in California. If you know of more schools and school models that incorporate this idea, make sure to post links or write about them. Spread the word about effective instruction.
