Reps. Thompson and Bonamici recognize February as Career and Technical Education Month
On Feb. 8, Reps. Glenn “GT” Thompson (R-Pa.) and Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.), co-chairs of the bipartisan Career and Technical Education Caucus, introduced H. Res. 110 with 71 colleagues recognizing National Career and Technical Education Month, which is observed each February.
“Historically, career and technical education has been wrongly viewed as a secondary choice for students, yet these programs are the key to bridging our nation’s skills gap,” Thompson said. “CTE prepares students with the technical skills needed to obtain high-paying, high-demand jobs. I am proud to introduce this bipartisan resolution that recognizes the contributions CTE programs make to the American economy along with the important work being done by CTE professionals and teachers.”
“Career and technical education opens up pathways to in-demand, good-paying jobs and helps enrich the learning experience for students,” Bonamici said. “As co-chair of the Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus, I’m excited to introduce this bipartisan resolution with my co-chair Congressman Thompson recognizing February as CTE Month. There are many jobs available, many because Congress passed bipartisan legislation to invest in infrastructure and bolster domestic manufacturing, and CTE will help Americans get the skills they need to do this important work.”
