Integrating academic learning into career and technical education (CTE) classes can be challenging for educators and curriculum developers but can be aided by securing detailed feedback from CTE teachers. Drawing on a recent study, this issue brief identifies challenges developers faced in infusing more math into CTE curricula and notes that incorporating academic learning into CTE requires substantial time, effort, and other resources.
