For thousands in Mass., vocational education a waiting game
The Lowell Sun - 09/21/2014
More than 100 students awaiting a vocational education at Greater Lowell Technical High School are part of a statewide struggle of need versus space, a new survey finds.
The survey, conducted by Northeastern University law students in conjunction with the Massachusetts Communities Action Network, collected the waiting list length of 36 vocational schools throughout the state. It found that roughly 4,400 students are waiting to get in to a little more than half of the state’s 66 vocational schools.
