On May 14, 2015, the Senate Career and Technical Education (CTE) Caucus, in conjunction with the Alliance for Excellent Education, held a briefing on effective partnerships between business and industry and education that are transforming the high school experience for students and preparing them fully for college and a career. During the briefing, panelists discussed:

  • the economic need for next-generation high schools and the role of business and industry in supporting college- and career-ready pathways for high school students;
  • California’s Linked Learning approach to reinventing CTE;
  • the role of career pathways in supporting successful student transitions to postsecondary education;
  • how career pathways can be effectively implemented in a rural setting within and across school districts;
  • the National Academy Foundation’s approach to college- and career-ready pathways; and
  • opportunities at the federal level to support next-generation high schools.
