Supporting High Quality Career and Technical Education Through Federal and State Policy

This paper illustrates the advantages of career and technical education in high schools in order to retain students and provide those students that are not college bound the skills needed to be successful after graduation. The authors provide recommendations on how federal resources can support a systemic approach to knowledge and skill development for all youth. These recommendations provide policymakers ideas on how federal and state policies can support a greater role for CTE in high school reform.
