This policy brief details the different ways that students in Michigan can access career and technical education (CTE) programs and assesses the extent to which CTE availability influences enrollment and program completion.
This report summarizes the approaches that five OCTAE grantees took to increase the number of CTE teachers by recruiting and supporting new CTE teachers in their locales. The report provides a case study for each grantee, detailing their efforts, the challenges they encountered, and the solutions they developed while implementing their program.
Developed by the CTE Research Network’s Workgroup on CTE Cost Analysis, this brief serves as a guide for researchers, evaluators, and administrators in documenting the resources required to provide a range of CTE experiences for learners in high schools and community colleges. The brief, which supplements general tools for cost analysis in education, focuses on identifying specific additional resources used in CTE programs that would not be needed in standard classrooms.
This working paper from the Network research team led by Dr. Shaun Dougherty examines the effects of attending a school in the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) on students' industry of employment and within industry earnings premiums.
CTENYC as a Laboratory for Learning About Career and Technical Education: Lessons from CTE-Dedicated High Schools
This report from our Network team led by the Research Alliance for New York City Schools presents findings from their study examining CTE programs and systems in New York City to inform local and national policy and practice. The first in a series, the report focuses on 37 CTE-dedicated high schools, which are structured to ensure that all enrolled students participate in a CTE Program of Study from 9th through 12th grade.
This study from our Network team at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and RAND Corporation examined participation in North Carolina's Career & College Promise CTE dual enrollment pathway. The study found that about 9% of North Carolina students participated in CTE dual enrollment courses in 11th or 12th grade and that disparities in participation among subgroups were less than for college transfer dual enrollment courses.
2022 Multi-State Analysis of Trends in CTE Report: Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Tennessee and Washington
This annual report from the Career & Technical Education Policy Exchange (CTEx) at Georgia State University examines the latest administrative data from Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Tennessee, and Washington to understand changes in CTE concentration just before and just after the COVID-19 pandemic started. In addition, the report examines differences in CTE concentration by urbanicity, where the comparisons differ by state.
