WESTFORD – Lori Trahan, Westford resident and Democrat for Congress, met with officials at Nashoba Valley Technical High School on Monday to discuss the importance of expanding education in trades and vocational training in the Third District.
“We must reverse engineer our education system so that we are linking educational programs to the jobs that power our regional economy,” Trahan said. “Congress needs to support more funding for vocational and trades programs to help prepare students who want to go straight into the workforce be able to compete in the job market at the highest level.”
Trahan met with Superintendent Denise Pigeon and Jobee O’Sullivan, Director of Postsecondary, Continuing and Community Education.
“Our representative in Congress can help schools like Nashoba Tech by marketing vocational programs as alternative and profitable routes to education and by providing incentives for private businesses to partner with schools to support vocational programs,” Pigeon said.
