US Senator Peters speaks with students, tours Career Tech Center

On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, US Senator Gary Peters met machining, automotive, and graphic production students while touring the Career Tech Center in Muskegon. Peters is a strong advocate for career and technical education and is exploring new ways the federal government could be more supportive in preparing students for good-paying jobs. Peters said the federal government provides about $122 billion a year in direct financial assistance to students for post-high school education and less than $11 billion in funding to states to support career and technical education and workforce development.
