The Community Service Society of New York (CSS) is ‘an informed, independent, and unwavering voice for positive action on behalf of more than 3 million low-income New Yorkers. CSS draws on a 170-year history of excellence in addressing the root causes of economic disparity through research, advocacy, litigation, and innovative program models that strengthen and benefit all New Yorkers.’ Through research for an upcoming presentation in Washington, DC, I stumbled upon this excellent report entitled ‘Challenging Traditional Expectations’. The report is focused on NYC area, but the CTE background knowledge, statistics, recommendations and conclusions is extremely impressive and pertinent to all areas across the country. The dataset utilized included 79,705 students with 6,262 of the students enrolled in CTE schools. Take a moment to review the document.
