What We're Reading: CTE News Around the Blogosphere, Feb. 15

This week is Social Media Advocacy Week for CTE Month and Facebook, Twitter, news media and blogs have been showcasing great CTE programs across the country. If you have media coverage of your program during CTE Month, please send it to us so we can share it as well through our networks by emailing aparker@acteonline.org!

The Journal-Times has a great story on the Wisconsin State Superintendent Tony Evers’ visit to a local high school to check out the CTE programs and students engaging in them. The Saratogian overviewed the high-tech, highly-skilled training opportunities, including the area partnerships Cisco Networking Academy in their story this week. Learning First Alliance digs into the meaning of 21st Century skills and what it takes to effectively teach them and prepare students for success in the workforce. Lastly, Inside Higher Ed looks at a Missouri technical college that has rolled out a new kind of transcript that grades students on job readiness.
