The Effectiveness of Vocational Schools
The Chicago-based magazine's recent report found that every year, about seven thousand seniors earn their diplomas but fail to enroll in college. They also don't get directed into many of the viable, high-paying jobs that students could begin training for while still in high school. Plumbers, carpenters and machinists are just a few of the high paying positions that don't require college. Catalyst Editor Veronica Anderson recently talked to us about this issue. She says the training that is available in CPS might not even be making students viable in the real world.
