Wisconsin's Vocational Education Act, passed in 1911, launched a statewide network of continuation schools. The Milwaukee Continuation School - what would later become Milwaukee Area Technical College - opened in 1912 and began educating local residents for a better life. That important work continues today.
MATC will celebrate 100 years of innovative education September 2011 - September 2012 with a series of Centennial activities.
