Tech Prep: An Embryonic Idea and Divergent Practice

J. L. Hoerner, D. A. Clowes, T. Lachowicz, J. Wehrley, F. Hammons

This study presents practices and processes of articulated Tech Prep programs throughout the country as they existed in the Spring of 1991. The study is based on a comprehensive literature review, national survey, case study/site visits, and general observations of the project research staff. There were two major areas of focus in the project: (1) to get a general picture of the status of Tech Prep programs in the United States; and (2) to learn about Tech Prep programs for the at-risk students. This study should be useful to anyone involved or planning to get involved in Tech Prep.
