Dr. Dale Winkler discusses Career and Technical Education

​As Kentucky continues to make historical strides in the field of education, the first meeting of the newly created Career and Technical Education (CTE) Advisory Committee met in Frankfort recently.


​The committee is the result of the executive order signed last year by Gov. Steve Beshear that brought together the state and local administrative offices overseeing Kentucky CTE. As part of the order, an advisory committee was to be established to offer guidance to the Office of Career and Technical Education and be composed of individuals representing education and industry.

The first gathering proved to be very beneficial, according to Associate Commissioner Dale Winkler.

“The dialogue was very productive and energetic. I truly feel like this group has the ability to change the face of CTE in Kentucky, not only creating a model for other educational endeavors within the state, but to make Kentucky CTE a model for other states, as well,” he said.
