Help Stop Devastating Cuts to CTE: New Sequestration Resources on ACTE Web Site


 October 18, 2012

By: Mitch

Over the past year, ACTE has been working with our partners at the Committee for Education Funding, Campaign to Invest in America’s Workforce and Non-Defense Discretionary (NDD) Summit to raise awareness among our members, the public and policymakers in Washington on the looming threat of sequestration. If Congress and the Administration fail to act before January 2, federal support for CTE is in danger of being cut by $92 million in 2013 alone! Time is running out, so it is critical that you make sure that Members of Congress recognize the impact of cuts and the damage they would do to your programs. To assist in our efforts to stop these devastating, across-the-board cuts, we have created a new sequestration page on the ACTE website. It contains information and links to resources to help you better understand this critical issue and its impact on CTE. Most importantly it shows how you can voice your concerns to your elected officials with a few simple activities. Tell Congress that our students can’t afford more cuts to CTE. Stop sequestration now!
