Vocational Education and Manpower Policy Harmonization.
Cummens, John A.
The issues of harmonization and autonomy as they affect vocational education and manpower policy development and the implementation of program service delivery are analyzed. Some of the background issues that have affected the relationship of vocational education and manpower, in particular the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), are examined as well as the economic and labor market considerations and demographic and technological considerations that form the context in which these two areas function. Next, the context in which these two policy areas function as institutions is examined. (This context relates to their characteristics as institutions and as governmental organizations.) Interorganizational collaboration and coordination of vocational education and CETA are also addressed. Finally, the discussion focuses on formation of a vocational education policy. Considerations include a national versus nationwide policy, issues of policy harmonization for vocational education, and issues of policy analysis research and data needs. Six policy issues are then examined. (YLB)
