Exploring the Role of Career and Technical Education in Putting Michigan High School Students on a Path to Economic Success

Grant Year: 2019


Brian Jacob will explore the extent to which career and technical education (CTE) courses taken in high school can prepare students for employment later in life. By linking more than ten years of data on all students enrolled in Michigan public schools to records on employment and earnings, he will describe and estimate the effects of CTE on an individual’s job market outcomes. The project’s findings will appear in a report, a series of papers, and briefings for state-level policymakers.
