Career and Technical Education, Inclusion, and Postsecondary Outcomes for Students with Learning Disabilities
Theobald, Roddy J.; Goldhaber, Dan D.; Gratz, Trevor M.; Holden, Kristian L.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v52 n2 p109-119 Mar-Apr 2019
We used longitudinal data from Washington State to investigate the relationships among career and technical education (CTE) enrollment, inclusion in general education, and high school and postsecondary outcomes for students with learning disabilities. We replicated earlier findings that students with learning disabilities who were enrolled in a "concentration" of CTE courses had higher rates of employment after graduation than observably similar students with learning disabilities who were enrolled in fewer CTE courses. We also found that students with learning disabilities who spent more time in general education classrooms in high school had higher rates of on-time graduation, college attendance, and employment than observably similar students with learning disabilities who spent less time in general education classrooms in these grades.
