CTE has demonstrated a real impact for students, leading to strong high school graduation rates, postsecondary enrollment numbers and employment outcomes for completers. CTE can be a powerful strategy for closing equity gaps in high schools, but who is enrolling in high-quality CTE programs, how are those students being supported and who is being “tracked” into terminal, low-quality programs?
Join Ashley Gardiner Gilson and James Paul from the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) to discuss how state systems of K-12 education can evolve to better support equitable access to and success in CTE. CCSSO is a national organization of public officials who head departments of elementary and secondary education in the states and territories. CCSSO’s mission is to ensure all students participating in public education, regardless of background, graduate prepared for college, careers and life.
