As a father, my number one concern in life is the health and safety of my kids. I want them to do well in school, grow up, and get good jobs. But sometimes I’m worried they’re not being taught the skills they need to compete in the 21st Century economy. That’s why the upcoming mayoral election is so important.
Teenagers growing up in Chicago need to know this city believes in them. Providing key investments in vocational training programs at CPS high schools will keep students engaged and set them up for success in high-demand, high-wage jobs to support Chicago’s economy. It’ll also encourage more students to stay in school and earn their diplomas.
Do you believe in Chicago’s youth? Prove it – add your name to show support for vocational and career tech ed.
And make sure you vote in the Feb. 26 election.
