Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act – Perkins V


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Policies and Programs

~~“Perkins V  is  largely  based  on  the  structure  and  content  of  current  law  but  makes  some  key  changes  that  will  impact  the  implementation  of  CTE  programs  and  administrative  processes.  Perkins V keeps Perkins IV largely intact with the following emphases:  (1) larger emphasis on employer  engagement;  (2)  larger  emphasis  on  high-skill,  high-wage,  and  in-demand  career  pathways; and, (3) more funding flexibility to states. Perkins   V   maintains   a   focus   on   CTE   program   improvement,   flexibility,   and   data   and   accountability.”
