AASA Organizes Perkins CTE Letter for 80+ National Organizations and Businesses

In 2016, the House passed an overwhelmingly bipartisan bill reauthorizing the Perkins CTE Act, but the Senate was unable to come to an agreement on a few policy issues, so the bill never made it to Conference or President Obama's desk. Since President Trump has promised to bring jobs back to American workers, we decide to spearhead an effort with our friends at IBM and the Association of Career and Technical Education to urge the House and Senate CTE Caucus Co-Chairs to pressure the Trump administration to increase investments in Perkins CTE. In addition, we urged them to work behind-the-scenes to ensure Perkins CTE reauthorization would be taken up quickly by the House and Senate Education committees. You can read our letter, which is signed by 85 associations and businesses here.
