Carl D. Perkins
The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) provides a renewed vision of career and technical education programs for the 21st century. The Act envisions that all students will achieve challenging academic and technical standards and be prepared for high skill, high wage, or high demand occupations in current or emerging professions. Perkins IV provides an increased focus on academic achievement of career and technical education students, increases state and local accountability, and strengthens the connections between secondary and postsecondary education.
