The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 provides continuing federal support for rigourous CTE programs that prepare students for today's competitive workforce. The Act envisions that all students will achieve challenging academic and technical standards in current or emerging professions. The Act provides an increased focus on the academic achievement of career and technical education students, improves state and local accountability and strengthens the connections between secondary and post-secondary education.
