More career tech opposed by more Democrats

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on June 27, 2008

Just after the Assembly Education Committee killed two bills that would have provided for future high school career tech courses (SB 672 and 681) Democrats in the Senate Education Committee yesterday defeated AB 1586, a bill that would have allowed California State Universities to accept CTE courses as enrollment requirements.  This bill's failure essentially prohibits an important path to the CSU system for many students who need the inspiration and opportunity from these hands-on courses.  Even worse, the defeat contradicts all the positive CTE rhetoric from our elected officials.
    See what Get REAL leaders are saying
    AB 1586 vote:
    No -- Jack Scott (Chairman) (D)
    No -- Alex Padilla (D)
    No -- Gloria Romero (D)
    No -- Joe Simitian (D)
    No -- Tom Torlakson (D)
    No -- Elaine Alquist (D)
    Yes -- Mark Wyland (Vice Chairman) (R)
    Yes -- Jeff Denham (R)
    Yes -- Abel Maldonado (R)

    SB 672 & 681
