NEA's state and territorial affiliates shall pursue legislation in the various state and territorial legislatures, including the District of Columbia, to ensure that Career-Technical Education and Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps educators are protected by the same job security rights as other educators at the same grade level in the jurisdiction.

In other words, if the default classification for high school teachers in a state is probationary, followed by permanent, CTE and JROTC educators shall likewise receive the same classification.


In some states, such as California, CTE and JROTC educators may be permanently classified as temporary "at will" employees, whereas their colleagues in other academic subjects are classified as probationary or permanent, by default, with much greater job protections.
