Arne Duncan Urges CTE to Prove its Worth

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan urged the career and technical education community this morning to upgrade its programs to prove they are "worthy investments" as federal funding for such offerings grows tighter. Duncan's comments were part of an address he gave this morning at a joint meeting of the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium and the U.S. Office of Vocational and Adult Education. As prepared for delivery, the speech abounds with support for new-age CTE, but it could also come across as a warning.
