Creating Equitable Futures for All Learners Through Credential Transparency

This policy brief from Credential Engine, in partnership with seven state leadership organizations and five workforce, education and data advocacy/technical assistance experts, explores how full, open and transparent access to information about credentials and their value can be a crucial element of how states can work to dismantle systems that have created the inequities we see today. Through state examples from Alabama, Kansas, Minnesota and New Jersey, this brief can help Career Technical Education (CTE) leaders learn to uncover, understand, and work to solve inequities, while also providing individuals with increased agency to find, understand and compare opportunities to advance along their education and career pathways.
