- CTE is associated with higher levels of student engagement and reduced rates of dropout. In fact, the average high school graduation rate for CTE concentrators – student who take multiple courses in one CTE program area – is 94% compared to the national rate of 85%.
CTE high school students are college and career ready – 94% graduate high school and most enroll directly in college.
CTE is the answer to the nation’s projected deficit of 6.5 million skilled workers, including infrastructure, health care and manufacturing work-force shortages.
