Education Talk Radio shined a light on NASDCTEcâ€™s CTE: Learning that works for America â„¢ campaign initiative on a recent show this week. Â The showâ€™s focus on the campaign provided opportunities for CTE advocates to not only address the awareness campaign, but the CTE issues related to college and career readiness, consistent quality programs and economic vitality.
NASDCTEc Executive Director Kimberly Green noted that the campaign is about more than communicating the value of CTE. The campaign, she said, is a communication of the CTE communityâ€™s commitment to cultivating clear and high standards for quality programs.
Lolita Hall, State Director at Office of Career and Technical Education Services Virginia Department of Education,Â is supporting the national initiative by leading the campaign in Virginia. She said the messaging of CTE:Â Learning that works for America â„¢ resonates across all audiences.
â€œCTE is new and is transforming and we have solutions to help people get back to work,â€ Hall said. â€œWe know that is something on everyoneâ€™s mind.â€
â€œWe see a need to elevate the value of CTE with our local school districts across the state, our citizens, our parents, our student, [and] with everyone.â€
