New Authority for Technical Education Created

From the Wichita Eagle:

Kansas has taken the first step toward standardized statewide technical education programs, certification, credits and costs with the establishment of the Postsecondary Technical Education Authority. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius signed a law creating the authority and authorizing $917,000 in funding last week.

The authority, a seven-member board structured within the Board of Regents, will oversee all facets of technical education classes, whether offered by community colleges, technical schools or Regents institutions. It was created on the recommendation of the Kansas Technical College and Vocational School Commission, which worked for more than a year to devise a plan for moving technical education forward.
