AASA Supports House Committee Action on Perkins CTE Reauthorization

Tomorrow the House Education and Workforce Committee will mark-up the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act  which reauthorizes the Perkins CTE Act.  AASA applauds the Committee for its work to improve on the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act in a bipartisan manner and we are grateful that many of hte priorities AASA pushed to have addressed were incorporated in this legislation. You can read the letter, which details our praise for the bill as well as a few outlying concerns with the legislation here.  Senate action to reauthorize Perkins CTE is not expected soon.
