| CTE a Priority With Governors »
As part of ACTE’s National Policy Seminar, on March 14th attendees spent the day meeting with their Members of Congress to share ACTE's legislative priorities and to underscore the importance of federal funding for CTE. That evening, the Senate CTE Caucus hosted a reception, co-sponsored by ACTE and Project Lead The Way (PLTW), that highlighted student projects. PLTW schools from Wisconsin, Ohio and Virginia all attended. Unfortunately, four other schools were unable to attend due to inclement weather. However, talented CTSO students from Indiana, Iowa and Georgia who were in Washington for NPS attended in their place.
For the first time in memory, all four Senate CTE Caucus co-chairs attended the reception and gave remarks that highlighted CTE’s role in bolstering American competitiveness and strengthening the 21st century economy. The caucus co-chairs; Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Sen. Todd Young (R-IN); also announced the introduction of the Educating Tomorrow’s Workforce Act which would raise the quality of CTE programs.
ACTE President Lorri Carlile and PLTW’s Government Relations Director Ed Dennis also spoke at the event. The reception was covered by WUSA9, a CBS-affiliate located in the Washington area. That television segment is available here.
