The Effect of Attending a Career Technical High School on Employment and Earnings

Grant Year: 2020

Eric Brunner, Shaun Dougherty, and Stephen Ross will examine the extent to which a statewide system of career and technical high schools can increase economic opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. They will analyze data from students who attended one of the sixteen schools that comprise the Connecticut Technical High School System in order to measure the impact of being admitted to one of the schools on post-graduation employment and earnings. The project’s findings will be presented in a series of articles and a policy brief.
