The Critical Importance of Vocational Education in the Commonwealth


Report Summary:

Our six surveys of career/vocational technical education stakeholders are in striking harmony with one another, with only minor clashes of perception.

Equipped with a range of skills and knowledge—both vocational and academic—they are well prepared for the kaleidoscopic 21st century labor market.
