New York City’s career and technical education efforts are drawing national attention as parents and policymakers focus on practical education alternatives that help students get an early start on career and college. When President Obama landed in Prospect Park, he came to Brooklyn to visit a a CTE school. In Governor Cuomo’s new budget, he calls for building 10 new CTE high schools around the state. And since 2008, Mayor Bloomberg has greatly expanded career and technical programs and Mayor-elect De Blasio recently campaigned on expanding CTE further.
As the December 2 deadline for high school applications approaches, CTE Council Members, industry partners and recent graduates once again will talk about career and technical education with middle school and high school parents and parent groups at Borough Hall:
