CTE and College, Career, and Civic Readiness: The Role of State Boards

This webinar is now on-demand! Watch the full event here.

More and more, state policymakers, and state boards of education in particular, are focused on Career Technical Education (CTE) as a means to address employers’ concerns over a growing knowledge and skills gap across the United States. Once considered an education track for those students who were not thought to be “college material,” CTE is now an essential part of a comprehensive education strategy that helps ensure all students have the knowledge and skills to succeed in college, career, and civic life.

But seeing CTE reach this promise requires thoughtful policies and clear standards that guide effective practice and evaluation.

Join NASBE on May 14, 2014, from 3:00-4:00 P.M., for a webinar discussion featuring the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education’s Kim Green, and state representatives, such as Debe Terhar, chair of the Ohio State Board of Education, Steve Gratz of the Ohio Department of Education, and Georgia State Board Member Kenneth Mason.  Mason,  in his role at the Southern Regional Education Board, is working with a number of states on the cutting edge of CTE policymaking. Presenters will not only explore the range of CTE policy developments across the states, but how to develop CTE standards and effective measures, as well as early lessons-learned on implementation.
