Youth Act of 1980. Report Together with Dissenting Views. Ninety Sixth Congress, Second Session, House of Representatives.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This congressional report contains a discussion of the provisions of the Youth Act of 1980 (H.R. 6711) and presents dissenting views on the act. (The Youth Act of 1980 extends the authorization of and improves youth training and employment programs, extends the authorization of the private initiative program, and authorizes intensive and remedial education programs for youth.) After a summary of the act, the history of its consideration and the need for its enactment are outlined. Approximately one-third of this report consists of an analysis of the cost and major provisions of the act. The changes made by the Youth Act of 1980 in the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act in the area of youth employment demonstration programs (specifically in the areas of youth incentive entitlement projects, youth community conservation and improvement projects, and youth employment and training programs) are set forth in a section occupying nearly half this report. Dissenting views on the issues of using new monies and new policies, the failure to address the problem of basic skills and to adequately concentrate funds, and private employers and the failure to adequately involve the community in program implementation are provided.
