Dual enrollment is rising in popularity as an option for learners in Career Technical Education (CTE) to jumpstart postsecondary education, but intentional steps must be taken to ensure equitable access and supports for success in these opportunities. This white paper explores dual enrollment legislation in Georgia, specifically House Bill (H.B.) 444, signed into law in 2020. The research analyzes the impact of the legislation on dual enrollment participation in Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) programs, in particular for those populations who are historically under-represented in CTAE programs.

This research was produced by Dr. Kristin Corkhill, alumni of the inaugural cohort of The Postsecondary State Career Technical Education Leaders Fellowship at Advance CTE - Sponsored by ECMC Foundation and conducted as part of a real-world capstone project.
