You want your children or your neighbors children to graduate and be prepared for college and a career, right? Well, in the 21st century college and career readiness requires early and repeated exposure to knowledge and practice to develop skills. Career and Technical Education (CTE) not only teaches skills for specific career fields, it also teaches skills for life.

All District middle and high school students should have the opportunity to explore career and technical education courses in fields such as agriculture, business, family and consumer science, health occupations, marketing, and technology and engineering. Those increased opportunities will motivate students to do well, graduate and help them find a viable route to a rewarding career or profession. CTE programs provide multiple pathways to prepare for diploma and apprenticeship programs, technical college degrees and industry certifications, as well as four-year degree programs and other career and training.

Isn’t that what you want for your child or your neighbors child? Well, so do they. So, please support this petition for CTE curriculum in all District of Columbia (Public and Charter) Middle and High Schools.
