Review of the Research
• 70% of DECA students indicated their
experience future career plans and 65%
indicated that it influenced future college
plans
• Participation in Career/Tech pathways and
student organizations are a means to
improve social mobility for disadvantaged
students. (Offenstein et al, 2009)
Shelby County – A College and Career
Ready Mindset
What we believe:
We see a paradigm shift in the way parents view
post-secondary education
The present economic environment has caused
families to look beyond the traditional “my student is
going to college” mentality – now a more focused,
purpose-driven approach is required
This shift in attitude highlights the opportunities CTE
provides for all students
My Future will enable students to look at all ways to
gain access to the workforce
