ACTE Executive Director Endorses the Educating Tomorrow’s Workforce Act

ACTE Executive Director LeAnn Wilson today announced the Association's endorsement of the Educating Tomorrow's Workforce Act, which was introduced by Senators Tim Kaine (D-VA), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Rob Portman (R-OH).

"Senators Kaine and Portman have proven to be steadfast champions of CTE in the past, and their reintroduction of the Educating Tomorrow's Workforce Act further demonstrates their commitment to leading on this critical issue," Wilson said. "This legislation will ensure that federal funding will support important tenets of successful CTE programs so they can function at their highest capacity, and will support students planning to continue their education beyond high school for a career they feel passionately about."

The Educating Tomorrow's Workforce Act will benefit millions of students nationwide by focusing on the connections between secondary and postsecondary CTE opportunities through programs of study that lead to industry recognized credentials, licenses, apprenticeship or postsecondary certificates, or degrees. Furthermore, the legislation will make a variety of technical changes to existing law that will benefit CTE students and professionals alike, such as more specific requirements for a local needs assessment to focus on the elements of high-quality CTE programs.
