There is no state-of-the-art trade school for Fresno high school students because Fresno Unified’s message is college above all else.
Though the FUSD trustees have spent years supporting the idea of Career Technical Education, no concrete action has occurred, and teachers and counselors continue to tell the students that if they don’t go to college, they are losers.
Too many are pushed toward college and then drop out. CTE is the solution. Why do the trustees continue to fail these students? And by doing so, fail Fresno?
