CTE, Oh the Possibilities

Did you know that 81% of high school dropouts say that if they had more relevant, real-world learning, they would have been more likely to stay in school? Career and Technical Education gives students real-world opportunities and teaches them applicable skills to use in college and their careers. February is National CTE Month and California DECA’s chance to celebrate the positive impact CTE has on students.
We want you to join us as we spread awareness about CTE through our social media campaign! Shouldn’t everyone know about the possibilities CTE and CTSO’s provide students? We think so too!
What is one word that describes your CTE experience? Was it life-changing, unforgettable, or amazing? Whatever it may be, write it down and take a picture with your word! We encourage you to wear your CTSO’s shirt or uniform if possible! Post the photo on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using #CTEMonth! We hope to see you participate, so we can encourage more students to be a part of CTE!
