The importance of recognizing Career and Technical Education Month
February 1, 2023 - Gone are the days when it wasn’t cool to consider community college programs or technical school! For many years, messaging to high school students and families said going to a four year college was the best option. Because fewer students were attracted to community college and technical programs, many industries now face a shortage of workers. It takes a team to make a difference in easing the labor shortage and it can start simply by sharing the positive messages about career and technical education.

Join KET for a free Changing Seasons Training
January 10, 2023 - Join us at KET on February 2 as we highlight PreK-2nd grade resources from the Changing Seasons collection on PBS LearningMedia. These resources were developed through a co-design model, partnering with PBS KIDS and the PNC Foundation, to connect with PreK teachers and PBS member stations, such as KET to align materials from the Grow Up Great Lesson Center with PBS KIDS content. The result… new seasons-themed resources available for PreK teachers– all available in English and in Spanish.
