(RE)DEFINING THE GOAL

THE TRUE PATH TO CAREER READINESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY

How is it possible that both university graduates and unfilled job openings are both at record-breaking highs? Our world has changed. New and emerging occupations in every industry now require a combination of academic knowledge and technical ability. With rising education costs,  mounting student debt, fierce competition for jobs, and the over-saturation of some academic majors in the workforce, we need to once again guide students towards personality-aligned careers and not just into college. Extensively researched, (Re)Defining the Goal deconstructs the prevalent “one-size-fits-all” education agenda. Dr. Kevin J Fleming provides a fresh perspective, replicable strategies, and outlines six proven steps to help students secure a competitive advantage in the new economy. Gain a new paradigm and the right resources to help students avoid the pitfalls of unemployment, or underemployment, after graduation.

MAINTAINING STRATEGIC RELEVANCE

Career and Technical Education Program Discontinuance in Community and Technical Colleges

The community and technical college mission requires offering  relevant Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. Board policies  are plentiful for creating new programs in alignment with workforce  needs.  However, few districts have robust policies in place to  appropriately, strategically, and effectively discontinue or replace CTE  programs.  Based upon interviews and a statewide policy analysis, this  book identifies successful CTE program discontinuance strategies  including the impact of institutional culture. Eleven practical  recommendations and best practices are outlined to appropriately  discontinue CTE programs while making optimal use of limited fiscal and  human resources.  This book provides readers with information on career  and technical education, appropriate strategies to manage the constant  churning of CTE programs, college governance, and academic  discontinuance policies.

“ While all research tells a story, 
Local data is the most powerful tool for changing and evolving the narrative. ”
