ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
The Hechinger Report released an article this week, A State Embraces the Idea that not Everyone Needs to go to College, taking a look at how Kentucky ensures students are both college and career ready. Kate Blosveren Kreamer, Advance CTE Deputy Executive Director suggests utilizing accountability systems to validate high-quality programs and weed-out those that are not. “There are a lot of people that still think these programs are lower rigor,” said Blosveren Kreamer. “I don’t think that’s inherently true, but there is a mix out there. Hopefully, we can eventually use accountability to find and replicate the good programs.”
