Alliance for Excellent Education




The nation’s economy is only as strong as the educational foundation that supports it. Economic
success in the twenty-first century requires a labor force capable of demonstrating an advanced level of
both knowledge and skill. To be a true engine of growth, the nation’s education system must be
aligned with these demands. This is why the reauthorization of the Carl D. Perkins Career and
Technical Educational Improvement Act of 2006 (Perkins), the nation’s largest federal investment in
secondary and postsecondary career and technical education (CTE), is both critical and timely. As a
result of the previous reauthorization, a greater emphasis was placed on improving the academic
achievement of CTE students, program accountability, and the link between secondary and
postsecondary education. The next reauthorization of Perkins must continue to build on these changes,
ensuring that the opportunities provided at the secondary school level are relevant, engaging, of high
quality, and aligned with the career demands that lie ahead, and that such opportunities place a targeted
focus on those youth who have traditionally been least likely to have access to the educational
opportunities that prepare them to be both college and career ready.
