Yet another reason for expanding School-Based Agricultural Education...

Md. district expands career and technical education
Prince George's County Public Schools in Maryland plans to add 10 career and technical education programs to the district's offerings this fall. Students already have access to a growing number of CTE programs, with the district launching 36 such programs during the past three years. "It forms a community for the students, which is an additional level of support for the students to be successful," Lateefah Durant, district academic officer, said, noting that students in the academy programs often have fewer absences and fewer disciplinary issues.
