This issue brief from the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) discusses the role that career and technical education (CTE) programs have in helping students successfully transition from secondary to postsecondary education. The authors begin by noting the statistics on students who make the transition from high school to college and those who actually complete a postsecondary degree. The brief then discusses how CTE can improve these statistics by looking at key elements of four CTE initiatives: CTE Programs of Study, Dual Enrollment, Tech Prep, and Early and Middle College High Schools.
