Programs of Study in Perkins and Practice
This project examines three local CTE programs of study to better understand how this aspect of Perkins IV legislation is being implemented. How do mature POS work in practice, and how does this relate to the Perkins IV requirements? Case studies and backward maps of how the POS work are being developed from interviews, focus groups, student surveys, and document analysis in three communities to understand how the POS were developed and how they are sustained locally. Preliminary results will be presented and questions will be asked to facilitate interactive audience discussion of the findings.
