Last week we asked our members and partners to voice their support for including a CTE question in the second presidential debate. In response, thousands of people participated through a website developed in partnership with the debate’s moderators. Unfortunately, the moderators chose not to ask a CTE question, or any education question for that matter. However, thanks to all who voted, the initiative led to one very clear conclusion: Americans want to know where the presidential candidates stand on career and technical education.
For many, CTE is top of mind this election season. With the Perkins Act up for reauthorization and the Higher Education Act on the agenda for next year, it’s important that candidates for office articulate how they would support CTE. We hope that the final debate on Wednesday, Oct. 19th will be centered on policy specifics and include a question about workforce development, education and CTE.
Here are the results from the CTE question we submitted and our members voted on:
Don't forget to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram where we'll be tweeting and posting questions we hope are asked ahead of the final debate.
Please note that ACTE is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization that does not, nor will it, endorse any candidate or political party for elected office.
