Why "Shop" Shouldn't Be a Four-Letter Word
Thursday 3/24, 6:00 - 6:30 p.m.
Bobby Deetjen, Mike Felton, and the Reinvention of Public Schools through Career Technical Education (Bridging 20th and 21st Century Skills)
Join St. George Superintendent Mike Felton as he talks “shop” (literally!) with Midcoast School of Technology Director Bobby Deetjen on Thursday, 3/24!
Both Bobby and Mike have amazing stories to tell about all kinds of students who have benefited from the “hands-on / minds-on” style of learning that comes with a curriculum that is grounded in Career Technical Education, or CTE. They believe that this type of education has the power to revitalize public education and contribute to more resilient rural economies.
