Job-Oriented Education Programs for the Disadvantaged. Schools and Industry Cooperate. PREP-9.
Banta, Trudy W.; And Others
The alliance of private industry and the schools has produced many excellent job-oriented education programs for the potential school dropout, the hard-core unemployed, and the underemployed. However, the majority of educators and businessmen throughout the country probably are not aware of the variety of cooperative training ventures that have been attempted because no detailed compilation of information about such programs has been available. Such a report has now been prepared on a project supported by the U. S. Office of Education through its Targeted Communications Program. The four documents included in this kit are: (No. 9-A) "A Survey of Existing Cooperative Job-Oriented Education Programs" which provides a brief description of 61 exemplary programs and classified the programs by target population type of program, type of sponsoring company, organization, and state; (No. 9-B) is a synthesis and analysis of data from questionnaires completed by the participating school and business personnel on their programs; (No. 9-C) gives a more detailed description of 15 of the exemplary programs; and (No. 9-D) is a list of current selected ERIC documents on preparing the disadvantaged for the world of work. A related document is ED 034 086. (ON)
