Fewer than one in four students in public high schools in Michigan was enrolled in a career or technical education class in 2015. This is less than one-half the enrollment rate for both “Top Ten” and peer states.

What It Is: The average number of career-oriented and/or technical education classes in which public high school students are enrolled. 

Why It Matters: Serves as a measure of how well high school students are being prepared for highly-skilled technical professions.
