This bill offers a number of provisions related to employment, job training, and education programs. The bill would, among other things:
-eliminate 15 federal programs, largely seen by both parties and both chambers as both redundant and outdated;
-apply a single set of outcome metrics to every federal workforce program under the Act;
-offer some workforce training programs to all workers, as opposed to those only in labor union apprenticeships;
-offer Department of Labor technical assistance to Job Corps centers and operators;
-reauthorize adult education programs;
-authorize GEAR UP grants to improve college access for disadvantaged youth; and
-overhaul the job training system for youth with disabilities.
