Gordon is the first author to provide a relevant, up-to-date synthesis of the history, philosophy, legislation, and organizational/curricular structure of career and technical education. His text offers a detailed and well-documented road map of CTE, from its foundation all the way to its present status. Career and technical educators will find the comprehensive background and research they need on such topics as gender, ethnicity, and special-needs populations as well as the impact of the aging workforce. This well-researched new edition examines the current issues that shape the role of career and technical education in the global economy of the technology-driven twenty-first century. Among the timely topics examined in this well-researched, revised edition are: 1) the roots of CTE in America and an overview of influential leaders in CTE curriculum development; 2) the impact of land-grant institutions on the professional growth of CTE, important factors influencing CTE development, and the evolution and implications of federal CTE legislation; 3) the latest research involving CTE teachers and instructional programs, career and technical student organizations, and the effectiveness of School-to-Work; and 4) a new chapter on twenty-first-century issues and trends impacting the future of CTE.
