In the present economic climate, pursuing a postsecondary degree has become a necessity, making the need for every student to graduate from high school college and career ready more important than it has ever been. Career and technical education (CTE) can play a critical role in providing high school students with this level of preparation.

Work-based learning opportunities and academic rigor are two essential characteristics of effective CTE pathways.
