CTE is facing unprecedented cuts in funding at the very time when we can least afford it. As a consequence of the recent economic downturn, more and more people are looking for a way to increase their potential for employment. CTE is a desirable solution because our training meets a wide range of needs. We offer dynamic programs designed to prepare high school students for entry into college or the workforce, to further develop the capabilities of recent college graduates and to enhance the skill set of seasoned professionals. Now is the time to tell our story and truly showcase the success of our students and the programs where they received their training. The state and federal legislators, as well as our local communities, need to hear about the real-world, relevant training we offer students. It is our responsibility to make sure everyone understands the critical role CTE plays in insuring that people have access to a complete and competitive education to prepare them for success in the modern workforce.
