High-quality technical education programs create opportunities for students to discover their interests and talents. These programs tap into students’ passions, leading them to solid careers that will build fulfilling lives.
Career and Technical Education programs can boost graduation rates by keeping students engaged in learning and focused on their future.
Educators must be involved in decision-making at all levels in these programs, especially as advocates for funding. Students need up-to-date equipment, support services, and assistance in getting important certifications.
