Career Pathways in Michigan

In an effort to ensure all Michigan high school students are on paths to economic success, the Lab has partnered with Michigan Department of Education’s Office of Career and Technical Education and the Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Opportunity to study the relationship between various career pathways, including high school career and technical education courses (CTE) and postsecondary pathways, and long-term outcomes such as employment, earnings, and postsecondary enrollment. While the State, districts, and local schools exercise a great deal of control over CTE compared to other aspects of education, we do not know much about the relationship between CTE and these important. Our findings will provide actionable information to state and local administrators who must decide how to organize and fund these programs.
