The high school graduation rate among career and technical education students is significantly higher than the national average — 90 percent versus 75 percent.
Career and technical education programs don’t replace academic courses; they enhance them by emphasizing real-world skills and practical knowledge.
Career and technical education students can earn a paycheck, industry credentials and college credit while in high school, which can lead to better opportunities after graduation.
Career and technical education provides students with opportunities to discover what they’re passionate about and want to do — or don’t want to do — after high school.
Students in career and technical education programs and their parents are twice as likely to report being “very satisfied” with their education as students in parents who aren’t involved in career and technical education.
