Education Strengthening Career and Technical Education

Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006, the primary federal law governing career and technical education, and provide more than $1 billion to fund school-based technical training programs.

Unfortunately, states are ill-positioned to maximize the potential of this law to train the next generation of the American workforce.
