Title: Students Who Prepare for College and a Vocation
Description: This issue brief focuses on high school students who complete both a vocational and a college preparatory curriculum. The percentage of students who complete both curricula is small but growing. Those who concentrate in vocational areas that use computers most extensively (business and technology/communications) are most likely to also complete a college preparatory curriculum. The academic achievement gains and postsecondary participation rates of students who complete both curricula are similar to those who complete only a college preparatory curriculum.
