Oak Harbor Rep. Smith asked to defend career education

State Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton, visited Oak Harbor last week to learn the school board’s priorities for the 2013 legislative session.

Officials there hope to see a delay in regulations that could interfere with career and technical classes at the high school.

School officials were concerned about requirements, known as Core 24, that increase the number of credits students have to complete in order to graduate. Career and technical education is a topic Smith advocates as it readies students to enter the workforce.
