  • Let’s start with the big picture
  • From the economist “ideas” poll 2009. Where is education headed?“Are schools an antique idea?” nearly 50% say yes.“Will technology save the planet?” 85% yes!“Is Design thinking the future?” 85% yes!
  • What do each of these innovations share in common?
  • What kinds of skills do we need to foster in students to prepare them for jobs that don’t even exist yet??

    9. 9. It’s an economic issue when the unemployment rate for folks who’ve never gone to college is almost double what it is for those who have gone to college.  It’s an economic issue when eight in 10 new jobs will require workforce training or a higher education by the end of this decade.  It’s an economic issue when countries that out-educate us today are going to out-compete us tomorrow. <br />– President Obama, July 2010<br />

    13. 13. The Engineering programs have already demonstrated a high post-secondary educational enrollment rate as compared to all Career Technical Education programs in the district as well as in comparison to the AVID program that has been implemented district-wide. The data is repeated below in chart form to further illustrate this significant achievement. <br />
    14. 14. Our Career Technical Education Programs have effectively supported the closing of the achievement gap for all sub-groups qualifying as “at risk” or “underrepresented”. <br /> Students in our programs have consistently improved their standardized test scores and have more than doubled the achievement rates in the State of California. <br /> The chart below illustrates this growth and compares our programs’ students to the State of California’s data as demonstrated through the California High School Exit Exam (Cahsee):<br />
