Abstract

Reauthorization offers Congress the opportunity to strengthen federal CTE policy, while reinforcing other federal initiatives. The recent passage of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act will expand state efforts to build career pathways that connect education and workforce opportunities for youth and adults facing challenges to career success. Ongoing efforts to promote career pathways development on the part of the U.S. Department of Education, Department of Labor, and Department of Health and Human Services are directed toward strengthening programmatic connections and supporting individuals in entering and progressing through education and training programs.
