The U.S. Department of Education Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAEDivision of Academic and Technical Education has a page of National Initiatives for Advancing Equity in CTEThey will be creating an Advancing Equity in CTE toolkit that will help policymakers, academic staff, school administrators and counselors, parents, and equity coordinators introduce issues of equity.

The toolkit will be online on OCTAE’s Perkins Collaborative Resource Network (PCRN). The National Initiatives on this site contain information on Career Pathways and CTE as well as Equity and Technology.
