Career & Technical Education is a growing area of importance for public education. This reflects the needs of our society as ten million new skilled workers will be needed by 2020 in construction, engineering, manufacturing and technology. Additionally, skilled trades are the #1 in-demand occupations worldwide, and an estimated 3 million trades and skilled labor jobs are currently vacant and unfilled across the United States.
At Keller ISD, student enrollment in the CTE area have increased by over 450 percent in just three years. EECU joined district and community leaders to celebrate success at Keller ISD’s annual Career & Technical Education expo.
