California career tech education plummets in 2013

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Feb. 9, 2014

Last week the state released its new data on career and technical education enrollments in the state's public high schools.  While overall high school enrollment was down less than one percent in 2013, career technical education course enrollments were down almost 12 percent and CTE teachers had declined by almost 20 percent.  

California manufacturers continue to find a growing lack of skilled workers out of our high schools, our community colleges and our universities.  The state's public schools must find ways to bring back these courses and expose our students to the tremendous opportunities of manufacturing skills and careers.
