Whether it’s the workforce, post-secondary education or additional training for a specialty field, Ohio’s career-technical education programs prepare students for success in every pathway. PBS will showcase our state’s vibrant and innovative career-tech learning community in a new documentary, The Career Path Less Taken, debuting next month. The documentary will air on many of the state’s PBS stations on Thursday, Sept. 5, at 8 p.m. and will be available everywhere on demand in the PBS Video app. Be sure to check your local listings.
The Career Path Less Taken takes a deeper look at career-technical education, addresses misconceptions and highlights how these programs are vital to preparing students to compete in an increasingly complex and global marketplace. With Ohio programs in the spotlight, this documentary is appointment viewing and one to share with district leaders, educators, students, and families statewide.
The Ohio Department of Education is excited to continue the conversation! Immediately following the PBS broadcast, visit our Facebook and Twitter feeds at 8:30 p.m. to watch Career Tech Talk, an after-show discussion. Superintendent of Public Instruction Paolo DeMaria will moderate a conversation between career-tech students and industry experts.
