In this episode of Education Matters your hosts Tracy Hall and Lamar Mitchell invite guests Trina Williams, Career and Technical Education Coordinator for Hickory Public Schools, and Geoff Crosson, The Discovery High School English Department Chair for Newton-Conover City Schools, to discuss the growing trend of the nontraditional high schools who create a unique learning environment to both cultivate and educate the youth of the Catawba Valley. These educational institutions include coursework from college classes, career & technical instruction and the capabilities to better develop a trade that will help students enter the workforce or continue with higher education. Join the talk on Education Matters as we discuss the benefits and impact on student success that these nontraditional high schools offer. Find out the future of these schools and more on this episode of Education Matters.
