What's the Roadblock to Providing Vocational and Technical Education in High Schools—Lack of Funding, Instructors or Something Else? A Deeper Dialogue Session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Whether electricity or electronics, plumbing, computer programming, robotics, welding, carpentry, automotive maintenance, computer-aided drafting, or other vocational/technical areas, most of our schools do not have the capacity to even introduce our students to these courses, let alone teach them marketable skills. Is it funding, lack of trained instructors, or something else? Join us for an open discussion on this topic. Discussion points will be captured and then shared with those who have influence and decision-making power related to these issues.
