Outside of a learning environment, can you remember the last time you used the Pythagorean Theorem, the Bernoulli Principle or basic chemistry in your day-to-day life? It’s true that these lessons, the hours of studying formulas or practicing mathematical proofs, are used as foundational stepping stones for continued learning, meaning that while it isn’t being used daily, it is still constructive to continued education, but the root of the question still goes unanswered. Why aren’t students learning about the things they are interested in? Why aren’t they learning about the things they will use in the real world of work? Well, this is where Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs come in.
