Implementing Perkins
Hyslop, Alisha
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v83 n7 p32-38 Oct 2008
This is the first in a yearlong series that examines the implementation of Perkins in the states. Several changes were made to the specific performance indicators that states and local programs will have to report on under the 2006 Perkins Act. At the secondary level, academic attainment will now have to be measured by the academic assessments a state has approved under No Child Left Behind (NCLB). Graduation rates will also have to be reported as defined in NCLB. At both the secondary and postsecondary levels, the technical proficiency measure becomes much more rigorous. It should include student achievement on technical assessments that are aligned with industry-recognized standards when possible.
