Please join the Senate Career and Technical Education (CTE) Caucus, in conjunction with the Alliance for Excellent Education, for a briefing highlighting innovative approaches across the country to college and career pathways. The briefing will highlight approaches that have led to positive outcomes for historically underserved students with a unique focus on improving teaching and learning through integrated instruction.
Recent research demonstrates that CTE by itself does not produce the same benefits for students as well-developed college and career pathways that integrate CTE with rigorous academics, work-based learning, and student supports. College and career pathways prepare high school students for both employment and a full range of postsecondary opportunities. This requires strategic partnerships and innovation that is not seen in most regions across the U.S.
National initiatives have taken on the charge of ensuring high school students are prepared to succeed both in college and in the workplace by changing the way teaching and learning happens in classrooms, and by forming partnerships with employers, colleges, and community partners to close graduation gaps and to meet the demands of the twenty-first-century economy.
During the briefing, panelists will discuss
the latest findings on secondary and postsecondary outcomes of students who participate in high-quality college and career pathways;
how the teaching workforce is being prepared to integrate academics and CTE;
implementation efforts in an urban California school district;
the role of service providers in delivering high-quality local and regional implementation of college and career pathways; and
how current federal investments in CTE are being used to support this work.
Panelists will also address questions from the live audience.
Invited for remarks Senators Tim Kaine, Rob Portman, Tammy Baldwin, and Todd Young
