State Advances Brownbacks Tech Ed Proposal

KSCB News - February 23, 2012 8:26 am

The Kansas Senate has given first-round
approval to Governor Sam Brownback’s plan to modify technical
education programs.
The measure advanced Wednesday on a voice vote. Final action
planned for Thursday would send the bill to the House.
The proposal would provide incentives for high school students
who don’t plan to pursue four-year degrees and are interested in a
career in a vocational or technical program. The plan would allow
them to earn certificates in qualified programs through community
or technical colleges while still in high school.
Financial incentives would be included to encourage high schools
and technical schools to develop the certificate programs and get
students trained.
The plan was part of Brownback’s school finance proposal.
