Report Profiles Calif.'s 'Multiple Pathways' to Careers and College

Career and technical education is on the move. It's been reshaping itself from vocational-skills-based programming into a rigorous blend of academics and real-world experience.

California is playing host to a lot of activity in this area, and a new report lays out that interesting landscape for you. The CTE work there is known as "multiple pathways," but that has a very different meaning than it does in New York City, where it has more to do with offering a variety of ways for teenagers—especially those who struggle in traditional school settings—to complete high school. (We used this blog as a forum recently to let experts in these two approaches discuss their differences.)

The new study of California's multiple pathways work is by EdSource, which tracks and dissects education policy developments there. It explores the different forms CTE is taking in the state, and the challenges it faces as it tries to scale up.
