Research indicates that adding Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses decreases students’ risk of dropping out of high school. . Expanding CTE opportunities for students in historically underserved communities opens the door to new opportunities for students that find themselves left behind by the current education system. Join us for a conversation with former Maryland Delegate Alice Johnson Cain, Maryland Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford, Baltimore City Schools CEO Sonja Santelises, and Advance CTE Executive Director Kimberly Green to discuss how career and technical education programs in Maryland are working to engage students who would otherwise be at-risk of dropping out, while also preparing a strong workforce. This webinar will include an audience Q&A.
