Career and Technical Education (CTE), often referred to as vocational education, provides occupational and non-occupational preparation at the secondary, postsecondary, and adult education levels. CTE is an element of the nation’s workforce development system. As such, CTE plays a role in reducing unemployment and the associated economic and social ills. This book provides a primer on CTE to support congressional discussion of initiatives designed to rationalize the workforce development system. (Imprint: Nova)
