Coordinating Education and Employment Training. A Study of JTPA-Vocational Education System Coordination in Massachusetts.
Teitel, Lee
This report looks in depth at four Massachusetts service delivery areas (SDAs) and the educational providers with whom they interact. Chapter 1 reports the types and status of coordination in each region. Each case narrative has three parts: (1) a coordination "snapshot" that summarizes institutional players and types of coordination occurring; (2) institutional leaders' perceptions of coordination and obstacles and incentives to coordinate; and (3) a conclusion highlighting the outstanding issues. Chapter 2 looks at specific examples of institutional choice points and explores aspects of the institutional level of cost benefit analyses as they contribute to coordination-related decision making. Chapter 3 offers suggestions for changes to the system to improve institutional assessments of the costs and benefits of coordination organized by the three levels at which the change could be implemented: local, regional, and state. Chapter 4 provides a summary of the institutional perceptions of barriers and incentives along with each institution's satisfaction level with the status quo and its desire to work for further coordination. Chapter 5 makes three conceptual observations about the relationship between the educational institutions and the Job Training Partnership Act system pertaining to the question of who delivers services; the chapter poses questions to stimulate discussion about overall system redesign or recommendations to promote greater coordination. Information on methodology is appended. (YLB)
