ACTE Releases Paper on How Career, Technical Student Organizations Expand Career Readiness for Students

  • In a study of student performance measures, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) high school seniors significantly outperformed their non-FBLA counterparts on four performance measures: ACT scores; SAT scores; GPA; and graduation rate.
  • According to the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education, participating in leadership and professional development activities in a CTSO raises students' educational aspirations.
  • Students who partic
