We need to update our approach toward career and technical education (CTE).
Nationally, 70 out of 100 young adults will not get a four-year college degree. Fortunately, 70% of careers do not require a four-year degree.
Yet, much of our energy and investments center on the 30% of students who graduate with a four-year degree. Many of our industry’s future skilled workers will come from the 70%, and we should be doing more to support them. It is time for the construction industry to work together and speak with one voice to substantially increase support for CTE.
