“Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs offer students highly technical skills, but do they sufficiently address diversity? To ensure diversity is addressed, teachers in a CTE school within one of the most diverse counties in America will work to support critical understanding of diversity for CTE students. Through an advisory model rooted in tenets of social and emotional learning, students will explore how intersectional social issues may influence their experiences in college and career. We believe students who enter college and career with critical understandings can transform the status quo and become forces for equity in the workplace.”
