Concerted Services in New Mexico: An Evaluation of Developmental Change. Center Research and Development Report No. 5.
Holemon, Richard L.; And Others
Concerted Services in Training and Education was conceived as one way to minimize the dysfunctional effects of technological developments on rural communities. Three pilot projects were established to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of a concerted approach to solving the training problem and other needs of rural people. One project was located in Sandoval County, New Mexico, and a 10-member evaluation team conducted an examination to determine the operational context, the resources brought into the county as a result of Concerted Services, the means or process of change, and lasting outcomes. Some major recommendations were: (1) To alleviate confusion, the agency name and objectives should be changed, (2) An Indian with professional training and experience should be added to the staff, (3) The coordinator should recruit unemployed leaders to participate in training programs, (4) Concerted Services should be placed directly under the control of a federal agency, and lines of authority and responsibility should be clarified, and (5) Implementation of future projects should be preceded by planning for evaluation.
