“I teach ROP Metal Fabrication at San Benito High School located in Hollister, California. When asked to describe success stories of students who have completed a course or courses within the Metal Technology pathway, I never know where to begin. I could go on and on listing individual student accomplishments within the metals industry and beyond, but the importance and scope of the ROP doesn’t lie with only those students. It lies with all students who have enrolled in the programs. These courses provide applied learning that helps strengthen the language, math and science skills essential to student success in further education, careers and lifelong learning. ROP courses provide exposure to and mastery of the technologies that drive our economy.”
