Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Training activities authorized under Part B of Title II of the Manpower Development and Training Act (MDTA) of 1962, as amended, are described and evaluated and recommendations are made for continuation and improvement. The report includes sections on program innovations, experimental and demonstration programs, changing goals, teachers, curriculums, methods, and materials. Statistically, some highlights are (1) Between August 1962 and December 1966, training opportunities had been approved for about 837,000 persons, 270,200 of which were for on-the-job training, (2) Of an estimated 600,000 cumulative enrollments by the end of 1966, 337,000 had completed their scheduled training course and roughly four-fifths of these were employed, and (3) Classroom instruction was offered in 1966 to approximately 150,000 trainees in various schools. Recommendations include: (1) earlier appropriations by Congress to permit state and local educators to plan, staff, and equip programs, (2) establishment of additional training centers, (3) expansion of related instructional programs for on-the-job trainees, (4) greater emphasis on work experience related to occupational training, particularly for the disadvantaged, and (5) greater cooperative involvement of the private sector. Statistical tables are appended. (ET)
