CETA Vocational Education Coordination. Highlights of Selected Studies.
Brown, Michael R.; Scrimger, Kay R.
Because of the importance of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) and vocational education coordination at all levels, a number of research and development efforts aimed at improved coordination have been funded in recent years by the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Office (now Department) of Education, and state agencies across the country. This report examines a selected group of six of these studies and attempts to extract from them the information items which best represent the ideas, the conclusions, and the recommendations they contain. The report is a synthesis of the selected studies, designed to provide CETA and vocational education policymakers and practitioners with information on the development of successful CETA/vocational education coordination. The report is organized in four chapters. Chapter 1 describes the objectives and approach of the study, names and describes the six studies selected for review, provides general observations on linking CETA and vocational education, and examines the overall conclusions of the selected studies. Chapter 2 of the report contains an analysis of state and local coordination of CETA and vocational education based on four of the selected studies. In Chapter 3, selected studies are reviewed in terms of the information they contain on successful CETA/vocational education planning and successful service delivery. Chapter 4 is addressed to those interested in the study approaches taken by the researchers; it summarizes the goal, methodology, and report contents for each selected study. Information on how to obtain each of the selected studies is included. (KC)
