nacte overview3
NACTE OVERVIEW
  • Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins IV) again mandates an assessment of career and technical education (CTE)
  • Mandate is similar to the mandate to do the National Assessment of Vocational Education (NAVE; 2004) in Perkins III
nacte overview4
NACTE OVERVIEW
  • Key issues in the mandate include—
    • Implementation of Perkins IV
    • How CTE is being held accountable
    • How programs of study integrate challenging academic and technical content
    • Quality of CTE teachers
    • Who participates in CTE
    • Outcomes of CTE
nacte overview5
NACTE OVERVIEW
  • Perkins IV also requires an Independent Advisory Panel (IAP) to provide guidance to NACTE and prepare an independent analysis of it
  • Our first meeting is April 23-24
  • We have gotten an outstanding group of people to serve on it
nacte overview7
NACTE OVERVIEW
  • Although Perkins IV continues the direction of Perkins III, the policy context has changed—
    • Globalization of the economy has heightened concern about the competitiveness of our workforce
    • No Child Left Behind Act is supporting standards-based educational reform.
    • High school reformers want college-ready and job-ready graduates

NACTE Policy Issues
  • NACTE’s research agenda is in development
  • IAP meeting on April 23-24 will help us identify priorities and options; your suggestions are also welcome
nacte policy issues10
NACTE Policy Issues
  • Time to conduct research is limited
    • Interim report is due Jan. 1, 2010, and
    • Final report is due July 1, 2011
  • NACTE will also have less funding than NAVE (2004), the previous assessment
    • As a result NACTE will have to carefully prioritize the studies it can do
nacte policy issues11
NACTE Policy Issues
  • The logic of the issues NACTE is proposing to examine follows that of how standards-based systemic reform should operate.
    • Starting point is the content standards defining what students should know and do, and the end point is what they have learned
nacte policy issues12
NACTE Policy Issues
  • Cores issues are—
    • I.Are the new Perkins’ accountability provisions working?
    • II. Are states implementing the requirement for developing and implementing programs of study that integrate academic and technical content?
nacte policy issues13
NACTE Policy Issues
  • Cores issues are—
    • III. Are CTE teachers of high quality and getting the professional development they need for integrating challenging academic and technical content?
    • IV. Is student enrollment in CTE programs changing and do those programs integrate academic and technical content?
nacte policy issues14
NACTE Policy Issues
  • Cores issues are—
    • V. Do the outcomes of CTE students—high school graduation, achievement levels, postsecondary enrollment, and employment and earnings—reflect a positive impact from CTE participation?
    • VI. What about: funds allocations, Tech-Prep, and Promising Practices?
