week, the Obama Administration released its budget proposal for FY 2015. We previously
reported that the budget proposes to level fund the Perkins Basic State Grant
at $1.118 billion in FY 2015. In additional to Perkins, we would like to
highlight some other proposals in the budget request that could impact funding
for education and workforce training.

We're happy to announce findings from our annual, nationwide survey of
CTE students and educators, conducted in partnership with the National
Research Center for College and University Admissions™ (NRCCUA®).

On Tuesday, the Obama Administration released
its budget proposal for FY 2015. This document, normally
released in early February, outlines the Administration's spending priorities
for the coming year fiscal year. The budget proposes to level fund the Perkins
Basic State Grant at $1.118 billion in FY 2015, with no increase for CTE
National Programs either. ACTE is concerned that continued
inadequacies in state Perkins funding, which is proposed at $5 million below
pre-sequester levels and over $140 million below FY 2010 levels, are negatively
impacting high schools, CTE centers, community and technical colleges,
employers and millions of CTE students nationwide.
