Advance CTE, in partnership with the College in High School Alliance, released The State of CTE: Early Postsecondary Opportunities. This 50-state report reveals key findings on how EPSOs serve CTE learners and provides recommendations for state leaders to leverage state infrastructure and collaboration to advance equity in these experiences.

Key findings include:

  • Expanding equitable access to CTE EPSOs is a top priority, but challenges remain in supporting access for historically marginalized learners.
  • More learner supports are needed to expand equitable access to and success in EPSOs.
  • Many states collect data on CTE learner participation in and outcomes from EPSOs but do not report data disaggregated by subgroup and by program.
  • States have a critical role to play in improving credit transfer efficiency for CTE EPSOs.
