Recommendations of the Committee To Study Preparation of the Workforce. Item #4.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This report presents recommendations resulting from a study of current and future workforce preparation needs in Illinois. A special committee held 8 meetings and 10 hearings across the state and examined background reports on national and state labor conditions, existing job training services, and public, private, and proprietary education systems (K-12 and higher education). The Committee's investigations and recommendations address seven areas: (1) basic preparation for work, (2) workplace competencies, (3) retraining to improve competitiveness, (4) opportunities in education and employment, (5) educational transitions, (6) linking education and work, and (7) accountability. Fourteen implementation strategies are linked with estimates of needed resources for the remainder of fiscal 1992 and fiscal year 1993. An appendix lists all 38 of the recommendations. (DB)
