Generation NEXT Letters | Scott Bugbee
High School Technology Teacher, Sherburne-Earlville Central School www.secsd.org
This is Scott Bugbee, a technology teacher at Sherburne-Earlville Central School District located in upstate New York.
I have shared the Generation Next articles and videos with students and staff alike. I agree 100% the message within them. As an educator and promoter of hands-on learning, I want you to be aware of another problem. There is an extreme shortage of technology/industrial arts educators across the country.
School districts have started to respond, understanding the importance of hands-on learning in high schools after many of these programs were cut in the 1990s. Educating today's youth in the trades is extremely important. Making sure we have qualified instructors in high school settings to make that happen is a critical component to the success of the Generation Next initiative.
