Return On Investment In Workforce Development Programs, Kevin Hollenbeck

Kevin Hollenbeck

Finally, the paper presents results from the estimation of the ROI for ...

Postsecondary Education As Triage: Returns To Academic And Technical Programs, Kevin Hollenbeck Jan 2015

Postsecondary Education As Triage: Returns To Academic And Technical Programs, Kevin Hollenbeck

Kevin Hollenbeck

This paper examines the labor market outcomes of individuals with various types of postsecondary educational experiences.

Empirical evidence is presented concerning the relationship between economic outcomes and grades earned and the degree to which the labor market rewards credentials. Wage and earnings models yield different structural parameter estimates when based on the three different populations. The differences are most dramatic for high school background effects and for ...

"I Want To Do More And Change Things": Reframing Cte Toward Possibilities In Urban Education, Korina Jocson Dec 2014

"I Want To Do More And Change Things": Reframing Cte Toward Possibilities In Urban Education, Korina Jocson

Korina Jocson

This article addresses the discourse on career and technical education (CTE) from a multiperspectival approach to challenge the persisting academic-vocational divide. The author illustrates the paradoxical rhetoric in CTE, then shares a personal experience, and draws on ethnographic research to reveal a different understanding of enabling human capacity to support racially and culturally minoritized youth. In the end, the author suggests that a push beyond the language of investment and skills embedded in educational reform becomes all the more important in preparing youth for the future. Implications for practice, research, and policy toward possibilities in urban education are also discussed.
