CTE Caucus Briefing Attracts Senators

The Senate CTE Caucus held its first public event on June 11, which featured a panel discussion on CTE’s crucial role in preparing America’s students for the 21st century workforce. In advance of Perkins CTE Act reauthorization, the caucus has planned several events for Senate staff, including a school visit, to familiarize them with CTE benefits for students and the business community.

Panelists included:

  • Steve DeWitt, Deputy Executive Director, ACTE
  • Johan Uvin, Acting Assistant Secretary, Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education, U.S. Department of Education
  • Kim Green, Executive Director, National Association of State Directors of CTE
  • Robert Chiappetta, Associate Director of Government Relations, Toyota

Caucus co-chairs Sens. Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) attended the event as well to share their commitment to CTE.
