(DC) The Opportunities of Career and Technical Education
May 16, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 9:15 am EDT
High school curriculums often focus more on preparing students for college than on providing technical skills to ensure career readiness. This has resulted in a higher percentage of American high school graduates attending traditional undergraduate programs with little guidance for those who choose other pathways. As policymakers look to close the options gap, what is the appropriate federal role for promoting career and technical education programs in American schools?
Join AEI for remarks by House Committee on Education and the Workforce Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) and a discussion on how career and technical education programs can provide promising opportunities to American students and help develop necessary skills for an evolving workforce. Following her remarks, AEI’s Andy Smarick will host a one-on-one conversation with Chairwoman Foxx.
