  • Average CTE concentrator high school graduation rate (2007-2008) was 90.18%23. High-risk students are 8 to 10 times less likely to drop out in 11th or 12th grades if enrolledin a CTE program rather than general education.34. 70 percent of CTE concentrators stayed in postsecondary education or transferred toa 4-year degree program (compared to the overall average state target of 58%) andtransitioned to postsecondary education or employment by December of the year ofgraduation.45. CTE students are of all ages – youth to adult – and come from a range of backgrounds andexperiences. They can take courses in secondary school and transition into postsecondaryinstitutions, which also offer CTE programs. Further, after time in the workforce, CTEstudents return to postsecondary institutions to advance their skills and potentially earnmore credentials.6. CTE prepares students for some of the fastest growing jobs forecasted to rise in thecoming years such as health care, business, green energy, arts, agriculture and informationtechnology.7. Experts project 47 million job openings in the decade ending 2018. About one-third willrequire an associate’s degree or certificate, and nearly all will require real-world skill that canbe mastered through CTE.58. 80 percent of CTE concentrators persisted in postsecondary education.69. Number of CTE credentials awarded nationally in 2006: 2,022,8857
