Hands-On Veterinary Program Helps Navajo Students Succeed (Video)

| No comments

The veterinary science program at Monument Valley High School, located in Navajo Nation in northeast Arizona, is a great example of how career and technical education can improve the lives of students and their community.

Working in a state-of-the-art facility that contains a veterinary clinic, complete with two operating rooms, students apply their knowledge by assisting in exams, vaccinations, and surgery. The program prepares students for college and careers —100 percent graduate high school, and three-quarters continue to college — and has become the go-to animal clinic for families in the area.

In this PBS NewsHour report, career and technical education director Clyde McBride, who was honored earlier this year as a 2017 Leader to Learn From, further discusses his inspiring program.

This video originally aired on PBS NewsHour on April 18, 2017.
