An estimated 30% of California's entering 9th graders do not finish high school. In L.A. County the dropout rate, estimated at 55%, is higher than the graduation rate. The current focus on career tech. ed. (CTE) is a measure of the intensity of the search for solutions. CTE -- with its real world relevance and project-based learning -- is a way to engage students in education that is different than a purely academic approach. This study of CTE found encouraging evidence that CTE -- in its modern, academically demanding form -- can deliver an alternative approach to learning that can keep students engaged, help improve grade point averages and prepare students for both the work world and higher education.

Can Career, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) serve as a tool for poverty alleviation and solve economic problems for nations? CTVET include a wide range of learning experiences which are relevant to the world of work and which may occur in a variety of learning contexts, including educational institutions and the workplace. These include learning designed to develop the skills for practicing particular occupations and careers, as well as learning designed to prepare for entry or re-entry into the world of work in general. (Adopted from Morris, 2015 and UNESCO, 2006)

Rapid changes in the workplace, including progress in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, make the contribution of career and technical education more significant than ever. In the fifth edition of his foundational text, Dr. Gordon is joined by new coauthor Deanna Schultz. Continued focus on the history, philosophy, structure, and evolution of career and technical education highlights in-depth coverage on emerging trends relevant to all areas of the field. The pedagogical structure of the text presents abundant information in an accessible format. The authors’ introduction to the origins of and early leadership in CTE lays the groundwork for later discussions of representation of women and underrepresented minorities in the discipline, as well as the implications of a multigenerational workforce and global community on the way educational programs are designed for career readiness. In addition to comprehensive updates, this edition features a section exploring work-based learning, information on current legislation, and a new chapter on community and technical colleges.

This book is designed primarily for potential and inservice vocational instructors who are pursuing a program of personal and professional development which will ensure competency in this specialty. In any state in the United States, there are a number of uncredentialed instructors who teach courses in vocational education. Although these individuals may be competent enough in their subject matter areas, there is an obvious deficiency in the foundations of vocational education. Foundations of vocational education help vocational educators lay a solid foundation from which they can better help students hold aloft the banner of the full range of education for work, which is career and technical education in its modern sense. From this standpoint, this book is an excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate students at university settings. Appealing foundation books are normally concerned with historical, philosophical, and social considerations of vocational education. The basic principles of vocational education must be covered in these books. Such prominent elements can be found from Evans and Herr’s (1978) Foundations of Vocational Education to Gray and Herr’s (1998) Workforce Education: The Basics. This book is no exception.

Current data indicates that Career Technical Education (CTE) graduates with high school diplomas or postsecondary skills are preparing for careers in fields that are growing or in high-demand. Matching employability skills with workforce demand has been an issue among industries across the nation. CTE provides relevant academic and technical coursework leading to industry-recognized credentials for secondary, postsecondary, and adult learners. Further, CTE affords students the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and credentials needed to secure careers in growing, high-demand fields. The National Career Clusters[TM] Framework provides a vital structure for organizing and delivering quality CTE programs through comprehensive programs of study. In total, there are 16 Career Clusters[TM] in the Framework, representing more than 79 Career Pathways to help students navigate their way to greater success in college and career. Based on research that analyzes market needs in relation to the 16 Career Clusters[TM], the lists presented in this paper identify the Career Clusters[TM] that are expected to experience the fastest growth by 2018, and the Career Clusters[TM] projected to have the largest total employment by 2018. Many CTE programs maintain alignment of their courses to labor market demands by staying attuned to the needs of local businesses and industries. CTE helps students attain high-demand skills, preparing them for postsecondary education and increasing their future labor market competitiveness. Labor market projections, such as those shown in this brief, can aid CTE educators and other stakeholders as they work to prepare students for postsecondary education and careers.

A perspective in vocational education has been designed to incorporate into one volume, some outstanding papers dealing with current issues, concept, and trends in vocational technical education. Some of the issues discussed in the book include various vocational programmes that are offered in Nigerian secondary and post secondary institutions, management, staffing, as well as trends on students enrollment. The above issues are essential in the training and development of students as well as planning and administration of vocational-technical programmes in secondary and post secondary institutions. A distinctive feature of the book is its blend in theory and practice particularly as related to vocational training and manpower development. Chapters 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, and 18 specifically dealt with programmes, training, technological, and manpower advancement. All concept and terms that are presented in the book are explained and discussed within the simplest framework using updated references. The book can be used widely by both undergraduate and post-graduate students as well as teachers in the secondary and post-secondary institutions. The writing of this book affords me an opportunity to happily express my gratitude to some eminent people that have been used by God for sustained encouragement in my academic career. My long standing thanks go to Professor Michael N. Sugarman (My teacher at University of Akron, Ohio, U.S.A.) whose excellence in conduct, teaching, and researching have (for many years) inspired much of the driving spirit of my work.
