NEA will investigate, using existing committees and the National Vocational and Career Technical Education Caucus (V-CTE), to determine the impact of CTE programs in the reduction of institutional racism through Career and Technical Education partnerships with their program business partners in their communities.  These findings will be made available to all members through existing platforms to aid in developing further paths to end institutional racism.

Rationale/Background

CTE and business partners are developing programs to increase minority employment opportunities; we should evaluate these to help develop ways to break down institutional racism in traditional job fields which has a positive effect on the school-to-prison pipeline.
