To paraphrase a well-known saying, the success of a democratic society depends on a well-informed public. KACTE addresses this challenge. Included in KACTE’s Bylaw-adopted objectives are:

  • to advocate for Kentucky and national policy to benefit CTE; and
  • to promote public awareness of the value of CTE as an integral part of the total program of education and solicit public support for these programs.

Effective advocacy involves being informed, knowing the issues, following the policy, and acting professionally. The Issues section provides access to Updates, Policy Documents, and Advocacy Guidelines for any KACTE member to be an effective advocate for CTE.

Additionally, news of federal legislative and policy issues affecting CTE, as well as other legislative advocacy information and tools, can be found on the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) website:  https://www.acteonline.org/policy/#.UjHEXuDAqZg.
