Local educators, heads of industry and state lawmakers all met at Marshall Technical School for thre first-ever joint Career Technical Workforce Summit to discuss the future of Career Technical Education in the county.

“I’m excited about the new direction our state school system has embraced by investing in and prioritizing the tech schools’ needs where they haven’t in the past,” Alabama State Department of Education CTE and Workforce Director Philip Cleveland said. “First things first, with a new diploma system in place that provides accreditation in non-traditional areas, we’ve been able to remove Career Tech stereotypes by not putting the focus on ‘what are the neighbor’s kids doing’,” he said.
