  • Josh Donahue, 23, an Oregon State University economics graduate, is living on food stamps. First in his family with a university degree, he stays with relatives and scrapes even for a menial job instead of the bank gig he'd dreamed about.
  • "A degree in economics," he said, "doesn't really prepare you to understand the economy very well."
a faulty assumption
A Faulty Assumption
  • College grads earn more than others. It must be because they have a college degree.
    • One Quarter of BA grads earn less than HS grads
    • 83% of associate degree holders have same median annual earnings as a 4-yr grad.

Reactions to the Harvard Report
  • “This thoughtful paper makes a strong case for the development of multiple pathways leading from high school to post-secondary education or career training. Those of us who support a single-track system through high school need to carefully consider the questions raised in this provocative report.”

Phil Bredesen, Governor of Tennessee (2003-2011)

  • The 2004 National Assessment of Vocational Education (NAVE) Final Report found that occupational concentrators increased their 12th-grade test scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) by about 8 scale points in reading and 11 points in math, while students who took little or no career and technical education coursework increased their reading on NAEP by only 4 points and showed no improvement in math achievement.

so what else do you hold in your hands
So what else do you hold in your hands?
  • The future of your students
    • You can inspire and motivate your students to achieve.
      • Or you can do the opposite.

what do you hold in your hands1
What do you hold in your hands?
  • The future of CTE

If It Is To Be, It Is Up To Me Us

who is us
Who is “Us”?
  • CTE teachers are often in the minority in a school. This tends to make us invisible.
  • Because of our small numbers, we need to band together with other CTE teachers.
  • This will then enable us to be visible within a school, in the state capitol, with Congress, with the USDE, and with other government agencies
  • Now more than ever, your membership is important!!
    • There are major issues facing CTE
budget fy 2013
Budget FY 2013
  • Senate Appropriations Committee (June 14)
    • Level Funding for Perkins – this is a positive
    • Proposing to change the name of the Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) to the Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education
  • The House Labor Committee was to make budget recommendations last week
  • We must continually let Congress know how important CTE is.
  • Budget Control Act of 2010 calls for a 9% cut in domestic, discretionary programs (this includes Perkins) unless the Super Committee identified 1.2 trillion in cuts over 1o years.
    • The Super Committee failed to do this.
  • Unless Congress takes some type of action before Jan. 2, 1913 this budget cut will be implemented
  • We must urge Congress to not let this happen
cte reform
CTE Reform ??
  • Federal officials in OVAE have released their vision of what CTE should be like in the future
    • Investing in America's Future: A Blueprint for Transforming Career and Technical Education
  • Four Core Principles
    • Alignment
    • Collaboration
    • Accountability
    • Innovation
  • What OVAE says
  • What is not said
    • If your CTE program is not recognized as an in-demand, high-growth program, it will not receive funding
  • What OVAE says
  • What is not said
    • The collaborations are not geographic, they are discipline driven
      • One high school might have to have 10-20 collaboration agreements
    • No collaboration – no funding; funding goes to the higher level partner
  • What OVAE says
  • What is not said
    • There is no longer formula funding, it is all competitive grant driven and goes to the Consortia
  • What OVAE says
  • What is not said
    • Who knows what this is - another Race to the Top??
    • Ten percent (10%) of all Perkins Funding would go to this Innovation Fund.
the acte stance on the ovae blueprint
The ACTE Stance on the OVAE Blueprint
  • We respectfully disagree with just about everything in the Blueprint.
  • We have allies in Congress who agree with us.
  • However, we need rank-and-file CTE teachers to belong to ACTE so we can represent them.
    • There is strength in numbers
national membership
National Membership
  • There has been a steady decline in ACTE membership over the past decade
    • Some states have cut CTE positions
    • There is a question as to whether or not young teachers are “joiners”.
be smart
Be Smart!
  • The state ACTE fights for state education issues and provides professional development opportunities while the national ACTE fights for you at the national level and provides additional professional development activities.
  • Don’t jeopardize the future of career and technical education to save a few dollars!
vision 2012
Vision 2012
  • Schools are becoming increasingly reticent to send people to conventions, thus ACTE is rebranding and repositioning its annual meeting.
  • Changes
    • More technical content
    • More industry involvement
    • More in-depth sessions
    • International involvement
We need help!
  • All CTE teachers should carry their share of the load!
in conclusion
In Conclusion
  • You hold the image of CTE in your hands
  • You hold the future of students in your hands
  • You hold the future of the profession in your hands
