  3. Career and Technical Education • Formerly known as Vocational Education • Name was changed to Career and Technical Education to combat the perception of Voc Ed being considered as “second class”. • When CTE courses also incorporate more academic rigor, research shows that student achievement significantly increases. • These findings suggest that CTE should be an important aspect of a state’s broader high school redesign strategy.

  26. The Power of CTE As a state, it is imperative that we: • Connect education to economic growth industries. • Include the skills employers demand in state standards, assessment, and accountability systems. • Base CTE curricula around state standards. • Improve the quality of CTE teaching (21st Century Skills/Rigor and Relevance). • Design quality-control measures to promote more rigorous programs (Career Programs). • Require high school students to declare a course of study. • Eliminate duplicated coursework between high school and postsecondary systems (Collaboration with NMC, GCC, UOG, etc).
