Agreed. Career and technical education (CTE) can and should play a central role in boosting student achievement, training the workforce and bridging emerging skills gaps in the American economy. Investing in it should be a priority for elected officials on all levels, businesses, educators and communities.

The Industry Workforce Needs Council is committed to advocating for these kinds of efforts and shining a spotlight on emerging skills gaps, so that businesses are able to find the workers they need, Americans can find good work and the economy as a whole benefits from both.
