Could the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act Re-authorization Move?

Some seem to think so.  Section 116 of that Act, 20 U.S.C. Section 2326, is the Native American Career and Technical Education Program (“NACTEP”).  NACTEP provides grants to federally recognized Indian tribes, tribal organizations, Alaska Native entities and eligible BIE-funded schools to improve career and technical education (“CTE”) programs that are consistent with the purposes of the Perkins Act and that benefit Native Americans and Alaskan Natives. For more information on this program, go here, or here.

Section 117, 20 U.S.C. Section 2327, is the Tribally Controlled Postsecondary Career and Technical Institutions Program.  This program awards grants to eligible tribally controlled postsecondary CTE institutions to provide basic support for the education and training of Indian students in CTE programs and for institutional support of tribally controlled postsecondary career and technical institutions. More information on this program can be seen here.
