A resolution designating February, 2018, as Career and Technical Education Month was approved by the New Jersey Assembly by a vote of 72-0 on January 8, 2018.
Sponsored by Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo, Assemblywoman Angela McKnight and Assemblyman Benjie Wimberly and co-sponsored by Assemblywoman Mila Jasey and Assemblyman Parker Space, the resolution recognizes and promotes the many benefits of career and technical education.
It also encourages students, parents, and other citizens to learn more about CTE, county vocational-technical school programs, and well-paying career pathways that can be launched with an industry credential or a two-year college degree.
New Jersey employers are encouraged to become active partners with county vocational-technical schools to align curriculum with their workforce needs and provide meaningful work-based learning opportunities to students.
