Celebrating 100 Years of CTE

Jeff Parcell 2017-02-24

We’re marking the last few days of 2017’s Career and Technical Education Month®, a public awareness campaign that takes place each February to celebrate the value of Career and Technical Education and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country.  As part of the celebration, we wanted to highlight the 100 year history of CTE in the United States.

The Association for Career &Technical Education (ACTE) states, “Career and technical education as we know it today has its roots in the founding of the United States. From the start, a strong knowledge base and skill set for citizens were considered important.”

For more information on how CTE has literally shaped our society from the very beginning of our country up until now, check out ACTE’s History of CTE, and watch the video below…
