A National Picture of Career and Technical Education by By Lisa Hudson, National Center for Education Statistics
Statistics, reports and summarized findings about CTE are available on the newly redesigned CTE Statistics website. Here, you can find information organized into three categories—secondary education, postsecondary education, adults in general—and sorted by topic, including CTE delivery system and offerings; student participation; and student persistence, attainment, and labor market outcomes. NCES updates the website as new data become available and new reports are produced. In the next two years, we plan to add updated information on participation in CTE by both high school and postsecondary students, as well as data on the foundational skills of adults and their participation in work-experience programs.
