Hands-On Veterinary Program Helps Navajo Students Succeed

April 19, 2017 5:53

The veterinary science program at Monument Valley High School, located in Navajo Nation in northeast Arizona, is a great example of how career and technical education can improve the lives of students and their community. Working in a state-of-the-art facility that contains a full veterinary clinic, complete with two operating rooms, students apply their knowledge by assisting in exams, vaccinations, and surgery. The program prepares students for college and careers —100 percent graduage high school, and three-quarters continue to college &mdash and has become the go-to animal clinic for families in the area. In this PBS NewsHour report, career and technical education director Clyde McBride, who was honored earlier this year as a 2017 Leader to Learn From, further discusses his inspiring program. This video originally aired on PBS NewsHour on April 18, 2017.

Coverage of science learning and career pathways is supported in part by a grant from The Noyce Foundation, at www.noycefdn.org. Education Week retains sole editorial control over the content of this coverage.
