Today, students in their states must be ready to compete for jobs not only in their hometowns, but across the globe. As a nation, all states must embrace the spirit of the global market and prepare students with the necessary academic and technical skills. Efforts by state leaders in South Carolina and Alabama offer model examples of how career technical education (CTE) plays an important role in answering their economic needs.
