Dec 17, 2021 - less than 1 minute

All 50 states and the District of Columbia offer career and technical education (CTE) programs for secondary students. These programs range from cutting-edge technology in artificial intelligence and computer programming to traditional agricultural and manufacturing programs.

This policy briefing provides an overview of CTE programs in Connecticut and peer states, including Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. The review examines how CTE programs are funded, the types of programs offered, governance of CTE programs in each state, and the enrollment process for CTE programs in each state.

Originally published on August 23, 2019, this policy briefing has been updated with statutory changes from Connecticut's 2021 regular legislative session.
