Southern Regional Education Board Press Releases
www.sreb.net, 18 Nov 2008 [cached]
"Vocational education needs to be more intellectually demanding," said David Wakelyn, a senior policy analyst for the National Governors Association, speaking at the SREB conference. Two of three future jobs require some postsecondary education - double the percentage of 20 years ago. Evidence also is mounting that higher earnings follow workers who have learned critical thinking and problem-solving skills, he said.
Wakelyn suggested several strategies to help states raise the quality of career/technical education: convince governors and other leaders to make the issue a major statewide focus, set higher academic standards for career courses, connect career studies to state economic development efforts, include career endorsements in high school paths of study, improve teaching in these courses, and ensure smooth transitions for students into postsecondary education.
