Climbing the Hill
March 4-6
Crystal Gateway Marriott, Arlington, Virginia

Thank you for attending the 2013 National Policy Seminar! This year's NPS provided a critical opportunity for CTE advocates to come together to climb the Hill, ensuring that Congress knows the value of CTE. We highly value your participation and appreciate you braving the "snowquester" to be with us!

This year's highlights included the opening address by Dr. Anthony Carnevale of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce; a panel session at the Capital Visitors Center with key education policy staff from both sides of the aisle; the presentation of the Policymaker of the Year award to Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-PA) and Rep. Jim Langevin (D-RI), co-chairs of the Congressional CTE Caucus; and, of course, your visits with legislators on Capitol Hill.

Data Quality Initiatives

With a growing national focus on data and accountability to help students succeed in education and careers, collecting high-quality data and sharing it across different agencies is more important than ever. For CTE, data quality and access issues include appropriately measuring student achievement, including the attainment of high-quality credentials; ensuring the quality of Perkins-funded CTE programs; and providing data to consumers on the connection between education and labor market outcomes.
