      Career and Technical Education

“ …I ask every American to commit to at
  least one year or more of higher education
  or career training.
       is can be community college or a four-year school; vocational training
    or an apprenticeship. But whatever the training may be, every American
    will need to get more than a high school diploma.”
    President Barack Obama
    From State of the Union Address, February 2009
