At various points in the history of the United States, career and technical education has assumed an enhanced sense of importance, and at the National Centers for Career and Technical Education (NCCTE), they have always been intimately concerned about such matters. Over the past six years, they have worked out of two primary offices in Columbus and St. Paul in order "to improve the practice of career and technical education at local, state, and national levels." There is truly something for everyone on their site, as the material offered here includes webcasts, podcasts, scholarly reports, and a "News & Announcements" section that gives users up-to-date information on some of their work. Visitors should be sure to take a look at the Workforce Education webcasts, as they include explorations of such themes as how to improve community college achievement and how to enhance mathematics instruction. Of course, many additional webcasts are archived, and users should avail themselves of these materials as well. The "Publications" section is well-organized, and includes policy briefs, an electronic newsletter, and the latest reports on their ongoing projects. Overall, persons with a vested interest in the future of career and technical education will find this site useful and worth returning to multiple times.
