  1. 1. ACTE Visions November 2016
  2. 2. Everybody Is Talking About CTE  TIME Magazine  National Public Radio  USA Today: “About 31-35% of Americans graduate from some type of college these days…But we need to better prepare the other 65-70% (for jobs earning a middle-class living) in the 21st century.”
  3. 3.  AFT: “A strictly academic curriculum has been prioritized to the detriment of career and technical education (CTE), which provides the link between the needs of the labor market and the needs of young people to be prepared for life after high school.”  OECD: “VET has been oddly neglected and marginalized in policy discussions, often overshadowed by the increasing emphasis on general academic education and the role of schools in preparing students for university education.”
  4. 4. Georgetown, Business Round Table and College Board: The Promise of High Quality CTE— “High-quality Career and Technical Education (CTE) — as distinguished from older models of vocational education — has great potential to improve student educational attainment and worker earnings, as well as outcomes for firms and the U.S. economy.”
  5. 5.  In the last two years………. 43 states approved new funding for CTE programs and initiatives 29 states have worked to elevate, support and incentivize business education partnerships and work- based learning 32 states passed policies to encourage learners to earn industry-recognized credentials Careertech.org

  10. 10.  …despite acknowledged improvements…..the long-term negative impacts of the skills gap on workers, families, business, governments and the economy are potentially far-reaching  CTE provides an opportunity to bridge that gap, by providing real world, hands-on exposure to fields to students while they are still in school and can choose a pathway to a growing career  95% of American CEOs believe their companies suffer from a skills shortage

  23. 23.  “According to data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the majority of CTE students in high school continue on to postsecondary education, and those who join the workforce outright or work to supplement their incomes as they pursue further education are often in a better financial situation than high school graduates who did not pursue CTE.” Techniques Magazine, February 2014
  24. 24.  78% of CTE concentrators enroll in postsecondary education, full time, within two years of graduation  About one third of all dual enrollment credits—about 600,000 in all—are earned in CTE courses  Students in postsecondary CTE programs are more likely to be employed within five years than those in an academic field of study Source: Careertech.org
  25. 25.  78% of CTE concentrators enroll in postsecondary education, full time, within two years of graduation  About one third of all dual enrollment credits—about 600,000 in all—are eared in CTE courses  Students in postsecondary CTE programs are more likely to be employed within five years than those in an academic field of study Source: Careertech.org

  31. 31.  Students with greater exposure to CTE are more likely to graduate from high school, enroll in a two-year college, be employed, and earn higher wages.  CTE is not a path away from college: Students taking more CTE classes are just as likely to pursue a four-year degree as their peers.  Students who focus their CTE coursework are more likely to graduate high school by twenty-one percentage points compared to otherwise similar students (and they see a positive impact on other outcomes as well).  CTE provides the greatest boost to the kids who need it most—boys, and students from low-income families.
  32. 32. What is your elevator speech regarding the value and importance of CTE?
  33. 33.  For the first time in 50 years, a majority of U.S. public school students come from low income families.  CTE can fix the “mobility escalator”
  34. 34.  Children living in poverty have a higher number of absenteeism or leave school all together because they are more likely to have to work or care for family members.  Dropout rates of 16 to 24-years-old students who come from low income families are seven times more likely to drop out than those from families with higher incomes.
