Career and Technical Education

CENTER CITY (WPVI) -- CTE was a hot topic at Philadelphia City Hall.

CTE is Career and Technical Education, which trains students for food services, child care, and other careers.

The council's education committee heard about why CTE programs should be expanded in Philadelphia's public schools.

Supporters say CTE prepares high school grads for jobs, if college isn't possible right after graduation.
