Hamilton to lead Career and Technical Education project for NY State Dept. of Education
October 26, 2012
Steve Hamilton will direct a project for the New York State Education Department that will identify tests of high school students' achievement in Career and Technical Education that are sufficiently rigorous to be used in place of a required Regents' examination. The goal is to recognize the academic content in demanding Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs and provide a pathway to college and careers for students whose learning style is hands-on and career-directed. The project will commence with the first meeting of the expert advisory panel before the holidays. They will reconvene in the New Year and a blue-ribbon panel will forward recommendations to the Board of Regents in the spring.
Hamilton was quoted in an October 21, 2012 New York Times article on the use of Career and Technical Education programs in New York City high schools.
