  • President’s Budget Falls Short on Building Investment in CTE

    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.
