80 percent of CTE teachers have Highly Qualified Teacher status.[i]
The majority of secondary CTE teachers, 80 percent, are Highly Qualified Teachers (HQT) as defined by ESEA--teachers with a bachelor’s degree, full state certification and demonstrated competency in their subject area. This compares to 90 percent of academic teachers with HQT status.
In addition, 97 percent of CTE teachers have either a regular state certification or a certification with additional requirements. This data illustrates that CTE teachers are well prepared for the classroom. When sharing with policymakers or the media, supplement this information with stories of particularly effective CTE teachers in your program, school or district. You may also want to talk about the importance of professional development for CTE teachers to continue to grow and develop as teachers and to foster their industry-relevant skills.
