KS interprets and aligns with Perkins which states "high demand, high skill OR high wage"  (1.)  as well as teaching employability skills through FCS programs (2.)

1.       Perkins V-Section 2. Purpose  "The purpose of this Act is to develop more fully the academic knowledge and technical and employability skills of secondary education students and post-secondary education students who elect to enroll in career and technical education programs and programs of study, by- (1) building on the efforts of States and localities to develop challenging academic and technical standards and to assist students in meeting such standards, including preparation for HIGH SKILL, HIGH WAGE OR IN-DEMAND occupations in current or emerging professions:"

2.       Perkins V-Section 135. Local Use of Funds (b) Requirements for Uses of Funds (5) (L) "supporting the integration of employability skills into career and technical education programs and programs of study INCLUDING THROUGH FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCES PROGRAMS."

Argument could also include definition of 'well-rounded education'

Perkins V-Section 134. Local Application for Career and Technical Education  (b) Contents (4) last line "......in the subjects that constitute a well-rounded education (as defined in the section 8101 of the ESEA of 1965)"

This is what ESEA 8101 of 1965 defines it:

In case you are interested, I  also have found data to support "high demand" from ChildCare Aware  (www.childcareaware.org<http://www.childcareaware.org>) which breaks down early childhood provider data per county (see linked publication pages 6-8).  I would think they would have the same thing for every state.  (I think I had to sign up for my state...no cost, just sign up)  It shares the potential number of children under 6 who may need care, and the number of slots available.  Kansas has all counties except three which do not have enough slots (one only offers 7% of the slots needed!) .  I have distributed this information to my local FCS teachers and service center leaders as they build their local needs assessment data as to why early childhood is high demand.  Here is a link to my reference: https://ks.childcareaware.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/SupplyDemand2018Final.pdf  (You might search "2018 Child Care Supply Demand Report: The landscape of child care in (insert your state)" to see if your state pops up.)

The other thing we are tying to the above is to include the wages of the parents of these young children as part of the economic impact of early childhood on the Kansas economy.  It totals $370 million from child care providers income and $616 million from the parents wages totally just under $1 billion impact of early childhood on the KS economy.  I've also taken this message to our KSDE early childhood team who has embraced this developing catastrophic scenario when our providers retire (a third issues...age of our workforce which is just under 60 yrs old) let alone meeting the "slot" needs".

I did something similar for each of my pathways if you are interested in that too.

Good afternoon!

During our summer Georgia ACTE conference at the CTAE Directors meeting, they were discussing Perkins V and pathways that are "high-wage, in-demand, and high-skill."  Well, some of the directors are confused and think they need to cut their FCS programs because they are NOT all three of the above.  Do any of you have a document or something related that is FCS specific to share with stakeholders?
