     A 2020 Vision
       State of Tennessee

“When you step back and look at all the things we
can do to improve the quality of our workforce and
the quality of life for our young adults, there’s
nothing more important than raising the high school
graduation rate. It’s the key to continuing an
education or, at a minimum, getting a decent job that
pays a decent wage and offers decent benefits.”
                                                  September 12, 2006




                  “We have no higher calling than to educate our children.”

                       Mission



Preparing today’s students for tomorrow’s opportunities
           CTE Demographics
 Sixty percent of Tennessee high school students
  are enrolled in a CTE course
 About 170,000 students (non-duplicated) take a
 CTE course annually
 The total enrollment in career and technical
 courses equals about 299,000 students
 (duplicated) annually
 CTE programs include students in grades 7 to 12
 CTE serves a total of 128 school districts and 3
 special state schools
         Postsecondary Demographics
 27 Tennessee Technology Centers (TTCs) served 28,267
  students during FY 2004 – 2005.

 13 Community Colleges Applied Science degree programs
  served 39,124 students during FY 2004 – 2005

 Tech Prep, administered by the Tennessee Board of Regents,
  serves as a transition link for students in CTE programs from
  grades 8 through the associate degree as part of the state’s
  P-16 initiative

 In FY 2004 – 2005 Tech Prep helped 2,142 secondary
  students gain postsecondary credit

 611 high school students have dual enrollment in TTCs
      The Challenge for Change



―Knowledge alone, without knowing how to apply it is
inadequate. Students need both rigorous and relevant
standards if they are to be prepared to function in a
technological, information based society.‖

                                  Dr. Willard Daggett
     The Challenge for Change



―When I compare our high schools to what I see
when I’m traveling abroad, I am terrified for our
workforce of tomorrow.‖

                                        Bill Gates
          The Challenge for Change




―One of the pillars of economic prosperity—our scientific
and technological superiority—is beginning to atrophy even
as other nations are developing their own human capital.‖

                             National Business Roundtable
  What Does the Research Show?




―More high school students are getting a jump-start on
postsecondary studies, but not at the pace found in
other states.‖


                                High Schools That Work
What Are the Challenges for Tennessee
               CTE?

  • Increase the high school graduation rate
  • Raise teacher and student levels in academic and
    technical achievement
  • Change misperceptions
  • View all students as candidates for postsecondary
    education and/or training
What Works? Rigor and Relevance

• Access to challenging career/technical studies
• High expectations
• A rigorous program of study
• Appropriate levels of literacy, numeracy, and science in
  career and technical programs
• Planned transitions from secondary to postsecondary
   A coordinated, concentrated plan
developed with four pillars supporting the
              2020 vision

 • Academic Achievement
 • Articulation
 • Communication
 • Professional Development &
   Teacher Certification
Academic Achievement



Provide a rigorous and relevant curriculum for all
courses for all students
     Research: Academic Achievement
• Graduation Rate: In Tennessee career and technical concentrators graduate at
  an 11% higher rate than the state average.


• Placement: Follow-up research of career and technical concentrators finds 92
  % of graduates show a positive placement in postsecondary, military, or the
  workplace.


• Almost 97% of CTE concentrators achieve mastery of the competencies
  taught in the career and technical curriculum.

• Forty one statewide articulation agreements have been signed between

  these programs students have an opportunity to receive higher education
  credit as a part of their high school studies.

• Among dual credit participants, significantly more Career and Technical
  Education students compared to non-CTE students attributed their decision to
  attend college to their participation in dual credit.
