April 30, 2014

Executive Director LeAnn Wilson of the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) today expressed her enthusiastic support for the Getting into Researching, Learning & Studying of STEM (GIRLS-STEM) Act of 2014, introduced by Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-CA).

"I am pleased with Congressman McNerney's show of support for young women and girls pursuing STEM curriculum and career and technical education (CTE)," said Wilson. "As an integral part of CTE, it is of the utmost importance that young women have access to STEM courses that will equip them with the skills necessary for success in college and at all career levels. This amendment will enable CTE educators to bolster their STEM programs' efficacy for America's female students, and strengthen our future workforce by connecting young women with the skills they will need for success in the careers of tomorrow."
