| New ESSA State Plan Guidance Released »
Recently, Sens. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Rob Portman (R-OH), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Todd Young (R-IN), co-chairs of the Senate CTE Caucus, reintroduced the Educating Tomorrow's Workforce Act (S. 628). The announcement came during a reception and CTE student fair hosted by the Caucus, ACTE and Project Lead the Way as part of our National Policy Seminar 2017.
The legislation builds on the effectiveness of the programs of study model in Perkins by establishing a rigorous definition for CTE programs of study. The bill would also introduce a comprehensive needs assessment and key program quality element, including professional development for CTE educators, work-based learning opportunities, up-to-date equipment and technology, and opportunities for students to earn postsecondary credit in high school. ACTE proudly endorses the Educating Tomorrow's Workforce Act and applauds the Senate CTE Caucus co-chairs for their continued leadership.
