New Jersey’s School Performance Reports, released last week, include a new measurement of the percentage of high-school students taking approved career and technical education classes.
The addition of that data this year is part of a law signed by Gov. Chris Christie last month to raise the profile and resources of vo-tech programs, both in traditional vocational schools but also in comprehensive high schools.
Overall, 19 percent of high-school students last year took at least one course in an approved CTE program during the school year, according to the reports.
