What are alternative pathways to education for the disability community?
Chancellor Kevin O’Farrell, a dedicated advocate for Career and Technical Education from the Florida Department of Education’s Division of Career and Adult Education, shares success stories and valuable insight on the numerous benefits of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs in Episode 9 of Audio ABLE.
Here are the top three takeaways:
- Unlike traditional academic pathways, CTE programs focus on hands-on learning and real-world experience.
- There are dedicated support services and resources available that offer personalized guidance for individuals with disabilities in CTE programs.
- CTE programs are fast, affordable and will prepare individuals for a high-wage, in-demand job. And the best part is, ABLE United account holders can use the funds they save, tax-free, on CTE programs and other education expenses.
