Nevada Educators and Leaders Laud Adam’s Plan:
"I see every day the incredible work being done in Nevada’s Career and Technical Academies. The work our students complete on a daily basis gives me great pride in our young people, and optimism for our future. I also see, unfortunately, how so many students who would love to be enrolled in CTE programs are left out, because of limited seating. I am thrilled to learn about Adam Laxalt’s plan for supporting education funding and expanding CTE in Nevada. A stronger commitment to CTE will provide more students with the unique opportunities to develop the technical skills required for today's economy. Every student in Nevada should have access to CTE,” - Ryan Cordia, Principal, Southeast Career Technical Academy
“During my 14 years working in education — as a teacher and an administrator — I’ve come to appreciate the importance of recognizing that every child is unique, with unique educational needs and challenges. That’s why I’m so pleased to see Adam Laxalt pledge his firm commitment to expanding Career and Technical Education in Nevada. CTE programs give a pathway to success for those students who may not be best-suited for the traditional, four-year college route. CTE equips those students with the tools and the skills that will allow them to succeed in the workforce, and is a crucial part of our educational approach. It’s encouraging to see Adam Laxalt understands this so well,” - Brett Scoggin, education consultant.
“Adam Laxalt’s approach to Career and Technical Education hits all the right marks — a commitment to increase funding, removing obstacles to CTE success, and engaging Nevada’s business community in these vital programs that will help create the workforce they need both now and in the future. As Nevada’s economy continues to diversify and grow, CTE programs are key to making sure we are training the workforce of tomorrow, while providing our youth access to satisfying and high-paying jobs for years to come. Adam’s platform will help get us there,” - Randi Thompson, Nevada State Director, Nevada Federation of Independent Business.
