1 Career & Technical Education (CTE) Created by: The University of North Texas in partnership with the Texas Education Agency Special Thanks to Jacqueline Kennedy for her work on this professional development module.

2 What is Career and Technical Education? Career and technical education is a large and diverse educational enterprise spanning both secondary and postsecondary education. It encompasses a tremendous number of programs designed to prepare students for employment and for living (Scott, J. L., & Sarkees-Wircenski, M.,2004, p. 2).

3 History of the Legislation 1917: Smith-Hughes Act 1963: The Vocational Education Act of 1963; Amended (68, 72, & 76) 1984: The Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act 1990: The Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act (Perkins II) 1998: The Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act (Perkins III) 2006: The Carl D.

4 Funding Source Carl D. Perkins federal funding supports Career and Technical Education to improve curriculum and technology, and provide opportunities for students in grades 9-12 to pursue specific career and technical training of their choice.

5 High School Reform American high schools are obsolete. By obsolete, I mean that our high schools, even when they are working exactly as designed, cannot teach our kids what they need to know today. Training the workforce of tomorrow with high schools of today is like trying to teach kids about todays computers on a 50-year-old mainframe. Its the wrong tool for the times. -Bill Gates, Founder and Chairman, Microsoft Corp. UNT in partnership with TEA, Copyright © All rights reserved.

7 Purpose of Career and Technical Education Past Purpose: To prepare students for entry-level jobs in occupations requiring less than a 4-year degree. Current Purpose: To provide individuals with coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in current or emerging professions.

8 CTE Emphasis CTE programs lead directly to entry-level employment and postsecondary education/training. Increased emphasis is placed on preparing all CTE students with higher-level technical and academic skills. CTE programs help students achieve academic success, experience increases in earnings and improved employment outcomes, reduce dropout and absentee rates, and achieve postsecondary success.

9 Texas Mission The mission of CTE in Texas is based on the understanding that a rigorous academic foundation contributes to success in school and life, that all students are entitled to equal educational opportunities, and that CTE programs complement and enhance academic preparation by enabling students to apply academic principles and technical skills essential for career success (NASDCTEC).

11 AchieveTexas AchieveTexas is designed to help students (and their parents) make wise education choices. It is based on the belief that the curricula of the 21st century should combine rigorous academics with relevant career education. When schools integrate academic and technical education, students can see the usefulness of what they are learning. The system also facilitates a seamless transition from secondary to postsecondary opportunities. (Source: )
