LAWMAKERS HEAR FROM EMPLOYERS ON CTE
In October, the Opportunity America Jobs and Careers Coalition worked with Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus co-chair Rep. Glenn Thompson to organize a field hearing in Harrisburg, PA.
Panelists included employers, educators and union officials in broad agreement about the need for more and better skills training in high schools and colleges.
Opportunity America president Tamar Jacoby testified on behalf of the OA Jobs and Careers Coalition, underscoring the critical role employers play in making training more effective.
Reps. Mike Kelly (PA-3), Scott Perry (PA-4) and State Sen. John Blake also participated.
