Are Recent Issues Making You Consider An Alternate Fuel Vehicle?
As I've often done in the past, I've asked a business leader or industry to "guest write" my column. Today we're hearing from Paula Zamudio and the Escondido Union High School District.

Career Technical Education: What is it and why does it matter?

The history of Career Technical Education (CTE), which provides students with academic and
technical skills and training, goes back to America’s founding. Beginning in the early 19th century, the workforce and public education system began to work together to create a stream of workers for different career paths. Since these early days, CTE has seen many transformations.

Present day CTE programs teach high school students’ valuable technical skills, making them
better prepared to go into technical trades and offer key real-life experience. The Escondido Union High School District’s CTE programs provide connections to current workforce demands, access to industry advisors, and work-based learning opportunities for students.
At Del Lago Academy and Escondido, Orange Glen, San Pasqual, and Valley high schools, CTE
pathways for students include the traditionally recognized programs like automotive and
agriculture, as well as newer programs like media and design arts. Escondido Union High School
District (EUHSD) schools offer 35 unique pathways in nine industry sectors.
