US Department of Ed
July 1, marks the beginning of a new era in career and technical education as states begin to implement the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V). The administration championed the passage of this new law which is designed to improve career and technical education (CTE) and help students gain the skills they need to compete for in-demand, high-wage jobs in their communities. As of today, the Department has received, reviewed, and approved every state’s Perkins V one-year transition plan. Perkins V will provide nearly $1.3 billion to states, school districts, and community colleges this year alone for career and technical education initiatives. The new law gives local leaders greater freedom and flexibility than ever before to decide how best to use the federal investment in CTE to prepare young people and adults for careers.
