Academic InnovationsThe Neglected Majority by Dale Parnell

In his visionary book, The Neglected Majority, author Dale Parnell champions the cause of those high school students who are too often overlooked: the 75 percent who will not graduate for a four-year college. For their sake, and for the country's, he argues, it is time for our high schools to develop and implement Tech Prep programs. If you haven't read this easy to understand blueprint for educational reform, you will find valuable strategies and solutions within its pages.

In the book's foreword, Thomas A Shannon, Executive Director of the National School Board Association, states, "Parnell makes a convincing case for the argument that the complex, technological world of the future is really already here. The emerging truth is that higher and more comprehensive skills must be developed, particularly by the middle two quartiles of the workforce."
