We Have to Stop Pretending – CTE Version

Based on Scott McLeod’s (@mcleod) blog post “We have to stop pretending“, I have decided to create my list of five focused on career and technical education.

We have to stop pretending…

  1. that CTE is only for those students who are not going to college.
  2. that students going to college do not need CTE courses.
  3. that CTE students do not do well on state exams or will not graduate.
  4. that CTE students are taking courses that do not need high skills or technology.
  5. that core academics cannot integrate CTE concepts into their classes.
