The Implementation of CETA in Eastern Massachusetts and Boston. R & D Monograph 57.
Barocci, Thomas A.; And Others
This monograph includes two reports describing the results of three years of field research on the implementation and impact of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) in Eastern Massachusetts. They represent a thorough and detailed study of the problems faced by prime sponsors in the initial years of CETA. The first report, CETA in Eastern Massachusetts, covers Cambridge, Lowell, New Bedford, and the Massachusetts balance of state prime sponsors. Chapter l concerns CETA in general and in Massachusetts; Chapter 2 gives the methodology of the study. Chapter 3 discusses the administration of CETA with emphasis on the organizational factors. Chapter 4 deals with the generalizations and lessons learned on the process of implementation of CETA. Chapter 5 presents numerical and qualitative impact and client information gathered from pre-CETA records and post-CETA performance and monitoring information. Chapter 6 summarizes in detail findings and recommendations emerging from the entire study. The second report, The Implementation of CETA in Boston, 1974-77, is a case study of the introduction of CETA in Boston. Following an introductory chapter, Chapter 2 discusses the transition period--the decentralization and decategorization of employment and training programs. Chapter 3 focuses on CETA functioning in Boston through community-based agencies, including changes, new programs, and problems with funds. Public Service Employment is the focus of Chapter 4. Chapters 5 and 6 summarize findings and conclusions and list recommendations based on observations in Boston. (YLB)
