It Takes a Community

There are many different factors that go into the education of a child.

Ready to Work

Shop class. Home Ec. Maybe some type of work-study program. That’s what many people think about when they hear the words “career education.” But today’s career and technical education programs have come a long way from the days of building birdhouses in a sawdust covered workshop.
