Meeting with Governor's Education Advisor

On my way home from our convention my cell phone rang. On the other end was Chuck Wilbur, Senior Education Advisor to Governor Granholm. He was concerned how the intergration of CTE was going within the new high school requirements. I told him that a CTE meeting was planned at our office the next morning and he was welcome to meet with 5-10 CTE administrators to visit with them on his question.
