This document, the fifth of five volumes that comprise the final report of the National Assessment of Vocational Education focuses on funding and administration issues related to the Perkins Act.

It presents findings about actual allocation practices and results, examines allocations from states to school districts and postsecondary institutions and allocations within school districts and postsecondary institutions, and discusses how local recipients spend federal funds. Chapter 2 on state administration of the Perkins Act examines changes in staffing and responsibilities within state offices of vocational education, as well as the interactions between the federal government, states, and localities in implementing the act. Chapter 3 reviews statutory requirements for coordination between vocational education programs and other federal job training programs and discusses coordination efforts at the federal, state, and local level. Endnotes follow each chapter. Appendixes include Perkins Amendments Coordination Provisions, charts, and data tables. A technical appendix describes the methodology used for the major data collection efforts contributing to the final report. A list of 276 references is provided. (YLB)
