TITLE: BECOMING THEIR FIRST CHOICE
Audience: CTE Educators
Description: For years you have forged partnerships, created pathways, and developed programs…yet we still have empty seats in our classes. Many career & technical educational programs remain the “alternative” or “safety” option. Why doesn’t everyone just “get it” already? While we balance preparing students for both higher education and the workforce, it is time to shift our messaging. We need to (re)define the goal and (re)examine why the tipping point still has not yet occurred towards pathways, industry credentials, career readiness, and the pursuit of gainful employment.
It’s time to become their first choice.

It is time to reexamine what questions we should be asking of our students, and of ourselves, to maximize student success.
