State Policies Impacting CTE: Year in Review

Each year, Advance CTE and the Association for Career and Technical Education partner to release an annual Year in Review report, summarizing any and all CTE- and career readiness-related policies passed and approved in a given year. Between 2013 and 2017, all 50 states and DC have passed at least one policy, board action, executive order or budget appropriations impacting CTE, for a total of over 500 policies passed in that five-year span.

In additon to providing a summary of all state policies, these reports also identify trends around the issues the policies are addressing - from funding and governance to industry partnerships and work-based learning.
