Legislators Applaud Educators for Advancing Career & Technical Education in Florida

As part of national Career and Technical Education (CTE) month, legislators around Florida are joining hands to celebrate educators involved in CTE. Chancellor Rod Duckworth from the Division of Career & Technical Education at the Florida Department of Education says “now is the perfect time” to thank teachers for everything “they do year round on behalf of Florida’s Career and Technical Education students.” Duckworth underlines dedication of educators across the state, and hopes the community at large recognizes the valuable role they play in building brighter futures for the next generation.

Next week, during CTE on the Hill, a number of outstanding students will be sharing their knowledge and skills with legislators and government officials. “It is through the positive efforts of people like you that we can be assured that Florida’s students are prepared to take their place in the global economy” Duckworth said.
