WDQC Recommendations for Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education (CTE) Act Reauthorization

Workforce Data Quality Campaign (WDQC) offered a list of recommendations for the renewal of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education (CTE) Act to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee. The recommendations were in response to the Committee's request for comments on reauthorization.

These recommendations take into account the Committee's bipartisan principles for aligning aspects of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), as well as improving evaluation and research. WDQC specifically addresses aligning performance metrics, data infrastructure, and labor market information to ensure that education and training programs are preparing all students and workers to thrive in a changing economy.
