Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006

Career and Technical Education focuses on exploration of the self in relation to the world of work. Students discover their interests, talents, abilities, and the niches where their talents and abilities might best be used. Career and Technical Education also equips students with research skills to enable them to form a realistic picture of job opportunities. In essence, Career and Technical Education brings greater satisfaction and relevance to career choices. Career & Technical Education better prepares students for all post-high school opportunities. Whether moving on to further education, training or employment, every Wisconsin student moves through curriculum-based career awareness, exploration, planning and preparation leading to a realistic individualized career plan which is compatible with the student's abilities, aptitudes and interests.
