  • Friends of CTE Guest Blog: CTE Offers Pathways to High-Demand, High-Skill Jobs « NASDCTEc Blog
    Americans are overeducated underemployed and that college isn t worth it The second view is that the only pathway to the middle class is through a higher education credential The first view is demonstrably false but the second view is also too extreme The more complex reality is that while low skill pathways to the middle class are being placed under increasing pressure by advancements in technology those pathways still exist just at a much lesser extent than they used to This does not mean that anyone should be satisfied with a high school diploma if there is an opportunity for further education The data clearly show that college pays off in the long run in the form of higher wages better jobs and a wider opportunity to achieve the American dream But those who cannot for whatever reason go beyond high school should not give up hope Career Technical Education CTE offers opportunities to these students through developed career pathways that begin the grooming process in high school preparing them for distinct high wage high demand high skill jobs Over the last 40 years our economy has seen enormous change in what the labor market demands of job seekers In 1972 72 percent of all jobs required a high school diploma or less along with some on the job training By 2018 that number will drop to 37 percent Of those 37 percent one in three jobs will offer salaries of 35 000 or more So while the old days of using a high school diploma as a ticket to the middle class are clearly over there are and will be middle class citizens who did not attend college What are these jobs and who benefits A few highlights from our Career Clusters study are listed below Most jobs that award 35 000 or more are in male dominated fields Manufacturing Construction and Transportation Jobs in the Hospitality and Tourism industry by contrast carry an average salary of 33 900 The best paying jobs are supervisory roles in manufacturing In addition to a diploma these roles require extensive training and experience Manufacturing supervisors earned 53 700 per year on average from 2007 2009 Machinists mechanics cost estimators plumbers and electricians all earn more than 40 000 per year on average The opportunity cost of not attending college is higher for women The labor market demand for workers with higher education is increasing but we should not forget altogether the workers who do not need a higher education credential to access the middle class and the American dream We need to inform decision makers institutions and individuals about the best ways to select the education and training required to achieve their educational goal Career Clusters Forecasting Demand for High School through College Jobs is a first step in that direction that answers the question Is it worth it What can I expect for my career choice today and long term And what are the prospects in my state The Friends
