Proposition 1D and the CTEFP
In 2006 the voters of the state of California Passed Statewide School Facilities Bond Measure Proposition 1D. Proposition 1D included $500,000.000.00 set aside for modernization/reconfiguration and new construction of Career Technical Education Facilities.
Unlike the State Facility Program (SFP) which is based on student population and age buildings, the CTEFP program is a competitive grant program.
Roots of Vocational Education
No number of object-lessons, got up as object-lessons for the sake of giving information, can afford even the shadow of a substitute for acquaintance with the plants and animals of the farm and garden acquired through actual living among them and caring for them. No training of sense-organs in school, introduced for the sake of training, can begin to compete with the alertness and fullness of sense-life that comes through daily intimacy and interest in familiar occupations. Verbal memory can be trained in committing tasks, a certain discipline of the reasoning powers can be acquired though lessons in science and mathematics; but, after all, this is somewhat remote and shadowy compared with the training of attention and of judgment that is acquired in having to do things with a real motive behind and a real outcome ahead.
