    What is/has been happening with High School Vocational technical programs for students who want to graduate but do not desire to go to college? We need to ensure that alternative types of programs exist to prepare all students to be “career ready” and become productive citizens.

      Thank you for the question. Many states and districts have been intentional about providing students with an array of college and career-ready experiences through pathways in recent years. Career pathways are career-based programs of study within high schools that provide students with hands-on experience in a field of interest. The Alliance supports California’s career pathways movement called Linked Learning that bridges together rigorous academics with career-based learning in the classroom to ensure that all students leave high school prepared to succeed in any postsecondary endeavor they choose. Visit our Linked Learning issues page to learn more about how California is changing the high school landscape.
