The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education (CTE) Act of 2006 and the Roles and Responsibilities of CTE Teachers and Faculty Members
Threeton, Mark D.
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v44 n1 p66-82 Spr 2007
The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education (CTE) Improvement Act was recently passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bush. Past and present Perkins legislation is examined in this paper in order to identify the roles and responsibilities of CTE teachers in meeting the current and future needs of the profession. This paper specifically focuses on three of the roles and responsibilities found within this legislation which include the title change to that of CTE, the inclusion of counselors and CTE instructors in the guidance and student development process and the integration of academics into career and technical curriculum. The conclusions and recommendations section outlines the roles and responsibilities of CTE teachers and faculty members and identifies some current and future needs of the initial CTE teacher preparation and professional development process.
