Georgia educators have long made it an impetus to push Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education. In fact, Georgia’s CTAE program currently offers 456 industry-certified programs across 17 Career Pathway Clusters, and Georgia students completing CTAE Pathways graduated at a rate of 97 percent in the 2020-2021 school year. These numbers will continue to grow as the State Department of Education begins developing classes that will allow students to explore career opportunities earlier in their educational career. Officials announced Thursday they are in the process of developing elementary level CTAE courses.
The courses will provide early exposure to careers and will be developmentally appropriate for elementary students. The program will build on the success of Georgia’s existing Career Clusters and Pathways, along with the existing agricultural education courses in the early grades and expand opportunities and reinforce foundational skills outside the core content areas.
