Innovating for Equity and Excellence: Perkins V Implementation Recommendations for States

The new federal career and technical education (CTE) law, Perkins V, provides states and local communities with the opportunity to be creative in ensuring that all young people—particularly those from historically underserved groups—are considered in the implementation of the new law, and that high-quality CTE implementation is prioritized and aligned with a state’s overall vision for preparing 21st century learners.

Here we offer concrete recommendations with a focus on equity and quality as a resource to states in the development of their four-year Perkins V state plans. These recommendations were co-developed with several partners in the work, including the Center for American Progress, JFF, the Learning Policy Institute, the Linked Learning Alliance, NAF, and the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment, Inc.
