HB 1213 requires the Indiana Works Council to create a career and technical education (CTE) diploma. Offering a CTE diploma helps schools identify early in a student’s high school career whether they have a desire to work in positions that require two year degrees and help them gain experience in those fields while still completing a rigorous high school diploma. This diploma opens the door for students to begin their chosen career a step ahead of the game by teaching them skill sets required to fill technical jobs.
There are more education choices available than ever before. The important thing is to find the right fit, whatever that may be. From a legislative standpoint, we will continue to work to make a quality education more accessible for anyone willing to go after their dreams.
