Over the years secondary and career and technical education have always been side by side though some school districts do not have the resources to offer a broad variety of CTE programs effectively. Traditional "shop classes", now CTE courses, have always needed industry engagement at the front end - course development & instruction - and after training employment. It is difficult to sustain this engagement due to many reasons - but the basics of what is needed through engagement are well known. At any time, the lack of teachers, instructors or resources can disrupt or end a pathway from school to postsecondary learning and industry employment.  Federal Perkins funds, on their own, can't possibly do enough for a state secondary CTE system. What are your thoughts and ideas about ways to sustain and grow CTE capacity to keep programs alive and achieve a more robust CTE system?
