Common Core State Standards: Technical Subjects
Career and Technical Education (CTE) is helping our nation meet the very real and immediate challenges of economic development, student achievement and global competitiveness.
CTE is organized by a national framework called Career ClustersTM This framework presents a complete range of career options to students, helps them discover their interests and passions, and empowers them to choose the educational pathway that can lead to success in high school, college and their chosen career.
