The Learning Curve: Career Tech Education

Share this story

In 2013, the PBS Newshour added Paseo Academy to its national roster of schools participating in the Student Reporting Labs project. Designed to increase teens’ understanding of today’s media landscape, the partnership also helps journalism students develop content which can be utilized for broadcast as part of  the Kansas City Missouri School District’s  Career Tech Education program.

The Learning Curve is a new, year-long initiative exploring innovative ideas in education, the challenges of their implementation, and the methods by which we evaluate what is and isn’t working in our schools. Take a closer look at what’s working in career tech in our metro and other district innovations, Thursdays at 7:25pm right after Ruckus and online at kcpt.org/learningcurve. Then join us for a roundtable discussion with metro superintendents on a special Kansas City Week in Review, April 24 at 7:30pm.
