Student Voices We are interested, it is not just a random class we have to take to graduate It is tied to your individual interest CTE teachers want you to learn and they care as much as we do. They [teachers] enjoy doing it and that is why we learn better. One student, when asked about Global 21 CTE Performance Assessment said, I loved it – it was cool. We had a relay light switch and doorbell and hooked up the service.
We have the best teachers in vo-tech that we could ever ask for. They are like our family. We stick together like brothers and sisters. they dont know what they are going to do. Student Voices We mostly hear about [CTE] classes from other kids. People dont understand vocational. Some people take vocational who are far up in academics. My friends are seniors and they wish they wouldve come to the career center because they dont know what they are going to do.
Student Voices People are amazing here and make you feel good about yourself. They never discourage you. They are very supportive. The skills you learn from being in the classes teach you leadership skills that will help you in life no matter what you do. Vocational teachers are more close to their students and they get more respect. The more you do, the higher level of trust you have to know theyve taught you how to be safe.

Pathways to Prosperity: Meeting the Challenge of Preparing Young Americans for the 21 st Century February 2011 College for All does not mean everyone needs a B.A. Most jobs do not require a B.A.
Pathways to Prosperity: Meeting the Challenge of Preparing Young Americans for the 21 st Century February 2011 Nearly 70% of high school graduates now go to college within 2 years of graduation. Only 4 in 10 Americans have obtained either an associates or bachelors degree by their mid-twenties. 10% have earned a certificate. This is a sobering situation. 56% complete a bachelors degree 30% complete an associates degree
