Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi to Discuss Signature Legislation on Newly Approved Career & Technical Education Diploma

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, D-Utica has been a driving force behind the newly approved state Board of Regents Career and Technical Education (CTE) Diploma for high school students. This new degree will provide an alternative educational pathway for students who do not plan to pursue white collar careers.

Starting in 2015, the CTE diploma will offer students training and certification in manufacturing and high technology specialties, including nanotechnology. It is expected that the new diploma will improve high school graduation rates and create a pool of workers to fill well-paying manufacturing and trade jobs. Students will also be able to earn college-level credit if they want to pursue higher education.

Assemblyman Brindisi will be the keynote speaker at the League of Women Voters January 24, 2015 meeting to be held at the Mohawk Room of the Radisson Hotel in Utica. Registration for the meeting begins at 10:30 AM, with our speaker presenting at 11:00. Lunch will be served for a cost of $15.
