NJ Spotlight--Op-Ed: Bond Act for Career and Technical Education Will Secure the Future

Funding for more career and technical education will be a game-changer for workforce development in New Jersey

There is one thing that New Jersey’s public policy leaders all agree on: If our state expects to prosper in the global economy, we need to increase our efforts to create a highly skilled 21st century workforce.

Washington Post—Op-Ed: What ails education? ‘An absence of vision, a failure of will and politics’

We have long benefited from a broad coalition that has advanced bold action to improve America’s education system.

That coalition has waned. It’s time to rebuild it.

Today, education is blessed with bipartisan agreement on what works, and cursed with bipartisan complacency at every level on taking action.

Both sides recognize the need to balance strong federal accountability with local innovation; to support high standards for teachers; and to encourage choice and diversity while keeping public schools as the core focus of national policy.
