All Aspects of an Industry Guidance
All Aspects is an integral part of the 2006 Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Act (Perkins IV). A provision in this act calls for students to have "strong experience in and an understanding of those aspects of industry the students are preparing to enter." Career and technical programs should be designed to deliver a broad understanding of all aspects of business, industry, and labor. Programs designed to address all aspects will provide instruction about the following concepts: planning, management, finance, technical and production skills, underlying principles of technology, labor issues, community issues, and health, safety, and environmental issues.
