Each year, Advance CTE and ACTE track and analyze state policy to prepare a Year in Review: State Policies Impacting CTE report. While 2021 was marked by significant and necessary coronavirus pandemic-responses, states were surprisingly active in enacting policy actions impacting Career Technical Education (CTE). Last year 42 states enacted over 140 policy actions that will impact millions of CTE learners in secondary and postsecondary systems. Join Advance CTE and ACTE to hear an overview of the trends from the 2021 report and highlights from key topic areas including funding, equity and access and work-based learning. Selected state leaders TBD will share in-depth examples of policies enacted in their states, including insights as to why and how these policies came to life and what their thoughts are on implementation strategies. A short question and answer will follow the presentation to allow for discussion around findings and examples.
