TSMA Virtual General Meeting 11:00 am on March 2, 2021
Keynote Presentation: Reimagining Education in Minnesota Presenter:Troy Haugen, Lakes Country Service Cooperative
Troy Haugen,Director of Career and College Readiness, Lakes Country Service Cooperative, will outline barriers that impact student transition from secondary school to a career in manufacturing, such as labor age restrictions, teacher licensing, graduation requirements, and fiscal challenges.
Join us on March 2 to Reimagine Education in Minnesota. The manufacturing community has a role to play in shaping the future of Career and Technical Education (CTE)!
What is important for youth to learn?
How can we redefine which educational components are necessary for a successful life?
Hear about recent interaction amongst members of TSMA’s new Manufacturer/Educator Solutions Group, where misunderstandings came to the forefront and common goals were confirmed.
Policy and politics are not the same thing, but…
CTE has proven to be a bipartisan issue, despite partisan politics when it comes to secondary education in general.
We (manufacturers, business owners, employers) really DO have a voice when it comes to CTE!
