CTE courses helps introduce us to a new type of environment in order to get us ready for the real world. The CTE courses are basically like a foundation giving us an understanding of the basics. Not only do they teach us basics in that CTE field, but they also help us with our employability and preparing for presentation/job interviews. The point in CTE course are to help make connections to what is happening to us locally in the program, school, and community.

I agree that it is important for students to see the connection between the program, their school, community, and beyond. Sometimes it is hard for students to understand how all of those thinks are linked together, and how important it will be in their future, both short and long term.
