Skills gaps are emerging in the economy, which of course has significant implications for the country. One way to curb the emergence of these gaps is through improved education, particularly career and technical education (CTE) and programs like this. It's not just about home economics and shop class anymore - it has expanded in recent years to encompass a wide variety of disciplines throughout the economy, and involve a variety of technological approaches and products. CTE educational programs have proven to be a worthy investment, not just in improved student achievement but also in helping businesses find and hire properly trained workers for the jobs they have open today. The Industry Workforce Needs Council is a new organization of businesses working to advocate for CTE as a means of curbing skills gaps.
