The Application of CETA Within California Community Colleges as a Legal Reality.
Cossey, Beatrice
When the 96th Congress reviews the 1978 Amendments to the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), their action may affect the community colleges. Therefore, it is important that community college administrators understand these Amendments. CETA's intent is to provide job training to economically disadvantaged persons to maximize their employment opportunities. Additionally, it provides for maximum coordination between CETA programs and economic and community development. Increasingly, the community college will be working with business and industry to train economically disadvantaged, un- and under-employed persons. College vocational curriculum, scheduling, and admissions may need adjustment to afford better coordination. The CETA Amendments which may be particularly significant to the community colleges are: (1) Title I now emphasizes administrative regulations; (2) it also requires that prime sponsors submit a master plan and annual plans with long-term goals for improving the labor market and economic conditions; (3) it requires prime sponsors to document consultation in planning with public and private program agencies; and (4) Title VII, Section 701, attempts to involve the local business community in CETA activities by providing a Private Sector Council, whereby businessmen function as brokers, advisors, and liaisons between prime sponsors and small business.
