Governor proclaims February CTE month

Governor Mark Dayton signed a Proclamation in January proclaiming February 2013 as Career and Technical Education Month in Minnesota. The Governor’s Proclamation urges all citizens to “become familiar with the services and benefits offered by career and technical education programs in our state, and to support and participate in these programs to enhance their individual work skills and productivity.”

In making the Proclamation, Governor Dayton stated that “Career and technical education provides Americans with a school to career connection and is the backbone of a strong, well-educated workforce, which fosters productivity in business and industry and contributes to American’s leadership in the international marketplace.”
