KTWU’s I’VE GOT ISSUES series takes a look at the new Career and Technical Education Act, enacted by Governor Sam Brownback in Fall 2012, which offers free tuition to students who take qualified technical courses offered at Kansas technical and community colleges.  Who is eligible for this program?  What are the benefits for the state of Kansas in having such a program?  What are the expected outcomes?  Featured interviews include Kansas Governor Sam Brownback; Jay Scott, KSDE Assistant Director of Career and Technical Education for the State Department of Education; Dr. Clark Coco, Dean of Washburn Technical College. IGI airs on Thursday, December 6 at 7:30 p.m. on KTWU-HD, Digital Channel 11.1.
