CTE programs of study are designed to prepare learners for high-wage, high-skill and high-demand careers, but how do we define what makes a career "high" anything? What does it mean to access a "good job" and where are they concentrated? Hear from Nicole Smith, research professor and chief economist at Georgetown University's Center for Education and the Workforce, as she discusses the center's new analysis, Good Jobs that Pay Without a BA, as a new tool states can use to bring their CTE programs into alignment with the careers of today. Nicole will be joined in conversation with Chauncy Lennon, managing director and global head of workforce initiatives at the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, which funded the research.
