The President will release his FY 2010 budget request to Congress tomorrow, May 7. At that time we will learn the President’s intention when it comes to fiscal support for Perkins Career and Technical Education Act programs. I will also be attending a briefing on the budget to be held at the Education Department at 3pm tomorrow. We will let you know all the pertinent details as soon as possible. Remember that this is the first step in the process and that Congress has the ability to add or subtract dollars from the President’s request during their process, which will take several months.
