All Education is Career Education


On Wednesday, July 26th, the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development will hold a hearing entitled, “Expanding Options for Employers and Workers Through Earn-and-Learn Opportunities.”

Wednesday’s hearing builds on the committee’s ongoing efforts to strengthen workforce development and education, while also raising awareness of apprenticeships.

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce issued a statement  upon House passage of the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (H.R. 2353). Chairwoman Foxx said,

“All education is career education. This bipartisan bill opens the door for more innovation in workforce development with the help of community leaders, educational institutions, and private business. We must continue to promote demand-driven workforce development that aligns education with the needs of employers who are anxious to hire American workers.”

The hearing is scheduled at 10:00 a.m. in room 2175 Rayburn House office Building.
