Postsecondary Pathways


Chiefs for Change members outline new blueprint for postsecondary success

Transforming Career and Technical Education

Members of Chiefs for Change are leading innovative work to strengthen and modernize career and technical education (CTE). Our report, Let’s Get to Work: Learning From Success in Career and Technical Education, describes how states and school districts can—and must—make major improvements to CTE in order to help more students find success in postsecondary education and careers. The report highlights approaches in four systems led by members of our network—Nevada, Tennessee, Denver, and San Antonio—and explains how improving CTE marks an under-recognized front in the battle for equity of educational opportunity.
