NEWS FROM THE
NATIONAL CENTER
Members of Congress Recognize
Importance of Career &
Technical Education
FBLA High School officers from
the District of Columbia, Maryland,
and Virginia shared how Career and
Technical Education (CTE), and
specifically FBLA, has impacted their
personal and professional development
with policymakers at a reception on
Capitol Hill hosted by the Association
for Career and Technical Education
in March.
Assistant U.S. Secretary of
Education for Career, Technical, and
Adult Education Amy Loyd noted
that now is " CTE's moment. " Calling
CTE research- and evidence-based,
she added, " What you are doing is
transforming our nation. "
House CTE Caucus Co-Chair
Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.) said CTE
programs are offered throughout her
state's community colleges and in
almost every high school. Because CTE
engages students, it helps keep them
in school, she noted.
Additionally, House CTE Caucus
Co-Chair Glenn Thompson (R-Penn.)
said he has seen waiting lists for CTE
classes in schools and noted that CTE
helps to " restore rungs on the ladder
of opportunity. " He advised students:
" You've got a great story to tell, and I
encourage you tell it with passion. "
