About the Author:

Kenneth C. Gray is a professor in the Workforce Education and Development Program at Pennsylvania State University. Prior to joining the faculty at Penn State, he was superintendent of the Vocational Technical High School System in Connecticut and has been a high school English teacher, guidance counselor, and administrator. He has published widely and is frequently quoted in the national press. He is coauthor with Edwin Herr of Workforce Education: The Basic. His latest book, Getting Real: Helping Teens Find Their Future, addresses the importance of helping teenagers develop career direction as a prerequisite to postsecondary success. He holds a BA in economics from Colby College, an MA in counseling psychology from Syracuse University, and a doctorate in technical education from Virginia Tech.

Review:

"The authors demonstrate an effective and legitimate working knowledge of a real high school and national dilemma and write skillfully and engagingly about the dilemma."--Robert Todd, Principal (09/06/2005)

"This is the first book I've read that concentrates on the academic middle who may not want to go to college or who may want to go but may struggle to succeed. Gray and Herr have provided educators and parents a resource full of alternative 'ways to win.' "-- (09/06/2005)
