Economic/Workforce Development
High School

The economic and social realities of the 21st Century necessitate that nearly every American have access to some form of postsecondary education. One increasingly important pathway to education and training beyond high school is career and technical education. Once considered an option only for low achieving, non-college bound students, career and technical education programs now serve students looking for high technology jobs and good salaries.

Career and technical education contributes to economic development in a state through the training of highly skilled workforce. It also serves a growing adult learning population seeking additional job skills or retraining. This issue site is designed to provide policymakers with an overview of the issues surrounding career and technical education in the states.
