House Reauthorizes Vocational Ed

Congress voted strongly to reauthorize the Vocational Education Act, which Bush recommended getting rid of.
From Congressman George Miller's press release:
"President Bush wanted to eliminate this program entirely, which would have cut $1.3 billion from programs that train today's workers and future workers for high- wage, high-skill careers." The bill supports high school and post-secondary programs.

I saw an ad for one of these programs on the subway the other day, training women for nontraditional jobs like electricians and engineers.
