FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


 

Local Engineering Teacher Attends Chicago Workshop


 

Molly Newman, a local teacher of engineering and architecture from Great Oak High School was selected as a Summer Scholar by the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) for a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop.

 

Molly Newman is pictured in front row, third person from the right.  

 

The NEH is a federal agency that each year supports summer study opportunities that connect educators across the country with experts in humanities disciplines. CAF is the leading organization devoted to celebrating and promoting Chicago as a center of architectural innovation.

 

Molly joined 35 other educators from 24 states in a seven-day workshop entitled, “The American Skyscraper: Transforming Chicago and the Nation.” The skyscraper, more than any other building type, gives American cities their distinctive character and because Chicago is home to several of the world’s earliest skyscrapers, Chicago central ‘Loop’ served as a living classroom and collection.

 

During the workshop historic Chicago skyscrapers served as a lens for educators to study invention and innovation; urbanization; industrialization; segregation; technology; labor; gender, particularly the introduction of women to the workplace; preservation; and civic identity. Each educator developed lessons and units for the new school year that will use architecture as a tool in teaching their core academic subjects.

 


Chicago offers excellent architectural buildings to study 

 

Educators had the rare opportunity to see several skyscrapers up close through CAF. They viewed rare archival documents on skyscrapers at the Art Institute of Chicago; visited the “Crown” of the 1925 Tribune Tower; and toured the interior of the Ludwig Mies’ van der Rohe 1965 Federal Center courtrooms. Scholars such as Dr. Antony Wood, Executive Director of the Council on Tall Buildings (CTBUH), lectured on the future of cities, shifting populations and growth, and innovative tall buildings across the globe.

 

Photos from CAF’s workshop are available at: http://bit.ly/NEHCAF2017

 

To learn about this and other NEH Landmarks Workshops being offered across the country in summer 2018, visit www.neh.gov/divisions/education/summer-programs. The approximately 1,600 teachers who participate in NEH programs impact more than 198,000 American students nationwide.

Our future economy depends upon a quality education system, and a quality education system prepares kids for both college and career.

 

Data shows only 30 percent of California high school graduates finish a college degree by age 28. The reality is that many kids will not earn a four-year degree, but these kids still need to earn a living.

 

That is why we need dedicated career technical education (CTE) investment in our schools.

 

CTE programs cover a wide range of subject areas, including plumbing, welding, agriculture, visual arts and media, software, drafting, auto, early childhood education and others. The classes tend to be hands-on and practical, often requiring buying specialized equipment that cash-strapped schools are loathe to purchase with general funds.

 

Adding to the urgency, CTE funding is set to expire in 2018.

 

CTE bridges the gap between the education and business communities, providing vital career pathways for kids that may not be college-bound. With the baby boom generation reaching retirement age, we need to be training the next generation of skilled workers now. In the welding industry alone, we are poised to have a nationwide labor shortage of 400,000 operators by 2024.

 

The timing is right for major CTE investment. California faces big shortages in housing, preschools, energy, water infrastructure and roads. These shortages push up the cost of living and make the middle class harder to reach for aspiring families. We need to address these shortages, and we need a skilled and trained workforce to do that.

 

The state CTE grant program now devotes around $300 million a year, only 0.4 percent of the total K-12 education budget of $74 billion. Unfortunately, this funding is set to expire. Without this relatively minimal CTE funding, many schools will not have the tools and equipment to start or maintain CTE programs.

 

I believe we need to prioritize CTE, and make its funding permanent within the state education budget.

 

The premise of public education is that every child should be given a chance to succeed. CTE broadens horizons for many kids, bridges education and the workforce, and builds a foundation for the skilled workforce of tomorrow. Our future economy needs it. Our kids deserve it.
