ACTE yesterday released two new publications: an Issue Sheet on CTE’s role in American competitiveness and a companion piece that profiles successful business-education partnerships in CTE.

The new Issue Sheet updates our longer and more in-depth 2006 Issue Brief on the same topic. It charts the current state of American competitiveness in the global economy and examines how CTE plays a vital role in developing a well-educated workforce that supports American productivity and innovation through its emphasis on college and career readiness, including academic, technical and employability skills; its partnerships with industry; and its focus on meaningful postsecondary attainment that leads to careers that drive the global economy.  

A useful companion piece, Business-education Partnerships in CTE: Driving American Competitiveness, features short profiles of successful business-education partnerships at secondary and postsecondary institutions and career centers in Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky, California, New York and Texas.

These publications are short and to the point, perfect for sharing with businesses, policymakers and the public to illustrate that CTE is at the forefront of readying students for college and for careers instrumental to American prosperity and innovation.
