Indiana Senate recently revised House Bill 1001 to eliminate that funding previously set aside for Career Technical Education (CTE) continue to be used for that purpose in Indiana’s schools. That funding also included ag education.
- Indiana’s House Bill 1001 revision could remove funding for Career Technical Education (CTE) and ag education in Indiana’s schools.
