Career and Technical Education: Fulfilling the Promise

PAST EVENT Wednesday March 30 2016

Once one of the most disparaged forms of education in the U.S., what used to be called “vocational education”—now renamed “career and technical education,” or CTE—has emerged in the past decade as one of the most promising approaches to preparing students for the future. New York City is at the vanguard of this new CTE movement. The number of CTE-dedicated schools in the city has nearly tripled in recent years—from 15 in 2004 to about 50 today—and includes seven “early-college” high schools, spanning grades 9–14, which many regard as a national model.

In a sweeping new Manhattan Institute report, “The New CTE: New York City as Laboratory for the Nation,” Tamar Jacoby and Shaun Dougherty examine the early results from these new schools and offer ideas for how CTE schools—in New York City and across America—can better place students on the path to success. Please join us for the report’s official release, followed by a panel discussion with leading lights from New York’s CTE movement and a keynote address by former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.
