Achieve a 93% Graduation Rate in Your District with Career and Technical Education
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 calls for Career and Technical Education (CTE) to be included in the definition of “a well-rounded education,” taking its place alongside traditional academic subjects like math, science, and English. As a result, funding and policies across the United States have been approved to advance CTE programs in education institutions.
A major benefit for your district is that CTE is now leading students to be much more engaged in their secondary-level studies as evidenced by vastly improved graduation rates. The graduation rate for students in CTE programs was 93 percent in 2012, which far exceeded the overall national graduation rate of 80 percent.
