Learning That Works for America
CTE - Career and Technical Education
Ensuring students are "college and career ready" has become a critical issue as concerns rise about success of the U.S. education system and ultimately, the country's economic competitiveness. The discussion surrounding college readiness is generally limited to academic skills, but actual career readiness requires an even more rigorous blend of academic, technical and employability skills, and the ability to apply these skills in authentic career situations. The foundation for strengthening career readiness are already in place through career and technical education (CTE), which offers this unique blend of skills through comprehensive programs of study.
