      Vocational Education in the US

      There is a long history of vocational education in the US.Dating back to colonial times, the government has supported programs to train skilled workers.It started out as a way to teach students to farm and work in industries.But as the American economy grew, so too has vocational training.Today, vocational education is usually called career and technical education, or CTE.Students in high schools and trade schools can earn degrees in many areas.They include nursing, engineering, accounting, biotechnologies, web design and auto mechanics.Career and technical education is different from traditional school because it is much more "hands-on."Instead of sitting in a crowded classroom taking notes, students in CTE programs learn a trade.They are prepared to step out of the classroom right into the working world.That means they can start earning money years before students who attend four-year colleges.

      美国职业教育

      美国职业教育的历史悠久。早在殖民地时期,政府就已支持培训熟工的计划。起初只是学生耕种及在工厂里工作。随着经济的发展,职业教育也发展起来了。如今,职业教育也称职业技术教育,或者CTE。就读高中或中等职业学校的学生可取得多行业的证书,包括护理,工程,会计,生物工程,网页设计和汽车机械。职业技术教育与传统的教育不同,它更注重实践。CTE课程的学生学会一门技能,而不是坐在拥挤的教室里记笔记。他们走出课堂就能马上工作,意味着他们比读四年大学的学生更早开始挣钱。
