Description

Once known as vocational education, today's Career Technical Education programs are preparing students for 21st Century jobs. Green collar jobs will be an important part of the future workforce. Students with disabilities can find opportunities within Career Tech Ed. A recent report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce finds that "jobs requiring middle and high levels of education and skills will continue to dominate Americas economy. These jobs require at least a high school education; more likely, though, they require some level of postsecondary education and/or training, resulting in a two- or four-year degree, an industry-recognized credential, a certification, or some other terminal indication of mastery."
