Advance CTE and the Education Strategy Group released a brief examining “where and how career readiness shows up in the first 17 ESSA plans.” The groups found that, “while more than half plan to adopt measures of career readiness in their accountability systems,” several states “missed an opportunity to fully leverage ESSA to advance a statewide vision of career readiness.” The brief also examined how “states plan to support career readiness through the vision and goals” through various funding measures.
