CTE, robots in K-12, and tenure: The week's most-read education news
This week, Education Dive took a look at the key role career and technical education is playing in a revitalized outlook for higher ed and K-12.
Also in higher ed, we looked at the negative effects tenure's disappearance could have on higher ed, including the lower graduation and retention rates reported at institutions with greater reliance on adjuncts. And in the for-profit sector, attorney generals in 13 states are pushing for the U.S. Department of Education and National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity to block the renewal of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools' accreditor recognition.
Meanwhile in K-12, robots are supplementing learning in a number of districts in ways that include coding and special ed.
