CETA/Vocational Education, Special Education, and Vocational Rehabilitation Linkages. Policy Paper Series: Document 5.
Phelps, L. Allen, Ed.; Greenan, James P., Ed.
Seven policy papers identify and address several issues pertaining to linkages between Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs and vocational education, special education, and vocational rehabilitation. The first paper examines barriers encountered in administration of federal legislation dealing with education and employment of handicapped persons, gives an overview of two critical national problems, and identifies options for addressing the problems and barriers. The second paper emphasizes the role of state planning in cooperative linkages. Alternative funding approaches for linkages are discussed in the third paper. The fourth paper focuses on implementing individualized planning requirements within education and employment and training programs. The fifth paper examines the basis for personnel preparation in organizations providing vocational services to special needs students. The possibility of interagency cooperative activities and suggested competencies for special needs vocational trainers are examined. Two hypothetical approaches are proposed to increase agency interaction through training of staff from all agencies. The sixth paper identifies problems of implementing, operating, and maintaining CETA/vocational education programs for special needs clients and the use of evaluation to facilitate program development and maintenance. The seventh paper suggests research and evaluation needs in the human resource development area and a shape for further program development. (YLB)
