Effects of Increased Emphasis on Education-Related Activities for Welfare Recipients.
Nightingale, Demetra Smith
The three sections of this document provide: (1) an overview of welfare work requirement policies from 1935 to 1988; (2) a discussion of the education-related provisions included in the Family Support Act of 1988; and (3) a summary of the likely effects of the increasing emphasis on education for welfare recipients. In the first section, the historical context for the work requirements is described, a detailed description of the work-welfare policy in the early 1980s is provided, and the employment and training program experience is explained. The second section contains a description of assessment activities and compulsory education requirements and a report on the increased emphasis on education that is apparent among various state programs. The third section highlights provisions of the Family Support Act of 1988 that might affect education and discusses the population which is subject to mandatory work related requirements under the Act as well as education requirements and participation standards. A brief summary concludes the document. Footnotes refer to 16 publications. (CML)
