ACTE Executive Director LeAnn Wilson today announced her enthusiastic support for the Counseling for Career Choice Act, introduced by Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI).
“I was thrilled to hear that Congressman Langevin is continuing to lead the way for CTE through the reintroduction of the Counseling for Career Choice Act,” said Wilson. “This legislation takes an important step by providing guidance and career counselors with the necessary labor market and educational opportunity information to create a plan for all students to graduate with the skills they need to pursue their career goals. By equipping counselors with these tools, we can ensure that every student graduates college- and career-ready.
The Counseling for Career Choice Act would help to ensure that our nation’s school counselors have the resources and materials to help students make educated decisions about their future, whether it is a four-year university, career and technical education program in high school or other option.
