This document, the fourth of five volumes that comprise the final report of the National Assessment of Vocational Education focuses on programs and services provided for special population groups targeted by the 1990 Perkins Act.

It explores the concentration and targeting of funds, activities and services offered by localities, the Perkins Act's effects on service provision, and state sex equity administrator's views on effects of the Perkins Act. Chapter 3 provides an overview of the Native American population and the 38 tribally run programs receiving Perkins funds and summarizes case studies of 5 funded sites. Chapter 4 provides an overview of the correctional population and of education issues concerning this population and examines allocation and uses of Perkins funds in programs for juvenile and adult criminal offenders.
