Removing Barriers to CETA/Education Collaboration.
Ideas for Action in Education and Work, n1 Mar 1981
The topic of this paper, the first in a series based on actual practice in education/work related programs, is educational collaboration between the school and Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs. The information in this paper is intended to contribute to the formulation of better policy and to aid practitioners engaged in setting up an education/work program or looking for ideas to expand one. Described are ways in which barriers to collaboration between schools and prime sponsors in CETA education projects have been removed. From these descriptions, some guidelines and recommendations for policymakers and other practitioners are synthesized. Findings are reported under four headings, where specific barriers to collaboration are presented, along with solutions: (1) getting started--how schools and prime sponsors in CETA can come together to plan programs; (2) administrative arrangements; (3) providing services--how to solve the problems of providing them in a coordinated and nonduplicative way; and (4) resources--what is available for building and expanding cooperative programs.
