H.R.5020 : CTE Act

Author's Summary:  To provide for the establishment of a Department of Education program to award grants to secondary schools that establish a project to encourage students in their junior and senior school years to experience career and technical education courses at a community college, and for other purposes.

IB Summary:  A 4 year college is not a realistic option for all students so this bill helps promote community colleges and other technical training facilities as an option for soon-to-graduate high school students.

Status:   Introduced in the House on  02/14/2018. Referred to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
