21st Century Career and Technical Education Pathways
Author: Helios Education FoundationApril 19, 2013

High-quality career and technical education (CTE) programs can help shrink this gap.

Attendees will receive a copy of the Morrison Institute report, On the Rise: 21st Century Career and Technical Education Pathways, which will be released at the event. They also will get a preview of the original analysis on CTE program outcomes.
What: Panel discussion on the role of CTE in Arizona's future
When: Tuesday, April 23, 2013 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.
