On behalf of the nation's more than 200,000 career and technical education (CTE) professionals, I would like to thank The Sun for its recent editorial highlighting the importance of career and technical education ( "The day after graduation," April 7). It is crucial that Americans, especially parents and students, understand the value of these programs and the return on public investment provided by CTE. Maryland students can benefit from the millions of well-paying, respected careers that are available in CTE fields.

While football remains far and away our country's most popular sport, in the past few years it has also become our most fraught, thanks to a steady drumbeat of stories underscoring its moral and physical hazards. The headlines dominating the news for the past few weeks have outlined cases of domestic violence by players against their girlfriends (the Ravens' Ray Rice among them) and children, and the acknowledgment by the NFL that one in three players is likely to suffer brain trauma.

It wasn't long into Deaisha Nixon's dental appointment this week that she found herself taking charge. When one dental assistant reached in a pocket for a glove, Nixon noted that they should be using a clean one from a box. And when the suction tube was placed in her mouth for too long, she pointed out that could cause other people's saliva to backwash. "I couldn't believe they didn't know stuff that I had learned in my 10th-grade year," said the Vivien T. Thomas Medical Arts Academy 11th-grader.

Students at Baltimore's city school headquarters showcased their work force-ready skills Wednesday, offering manicures, health screenings and surgical preparations for city officials and school leaders. The demonstrations came as the school system launched "National Career and Technology Education Month," part of a nationwide recognition of high school career-preparation programs that serve as pathways to the work force or supplemental training for future college degrees. As Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake proclaimed Baltimore's observance of the month, city schools CEO Andrés Alonso headed to Washington to discuss a report published by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, which advocates more emphasis on career preparation as early as middle school, rather than presenting college as the only path to success.

Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry suffered from a chronic brain injury that may have influenced his mental state and behavior before he died last winter, West Virginia University researchers said Monday. The doctors had done a tissue analysis of Henry's brain that showed he suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Henry died in December, a day after he came out of the back of a pickup truck his fiancee was driving near their home in Charlotte, N.C. Neurosurgeon Julian Bailes and fellow researchers at West Virginia believe chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, is caused by multiple head impacts, regardless of whether those blows result in a concussion diagnosis.

In 2002, a handful of technology powerhouses - Apple, Microsoft, SAP - realized there was a profound gap between the knowledge and skills most students learn in school and the knowledge and skills they would need to compete in typical 21st century communities and workplaces. They formed the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, which since then has published countless guides, lobbied the federal government and partnered with educational leadership in 16 states to position 21st century readiness at the center of U.S. K-12 education.

Gov. Martin O'Malley made a rare appearance at the state school board meeting Tuesday to welcome the new state school superintendent, Lillian M. Lowery, and encourage the members to work harder on preparing principals and providing vocational training to students. The state board voted unanimously to hire Lowery, who is Delaware's secretary of education. She will begin July 1. Lowery attended the board meeting, sitting next to the interim state school superintendent, Bernard Sadusky, but did not participate in the discussion, which centered on several key issues, including the adjustment to new set of high school exams in the coming years.
