Seminar on Preparing the Disadvantaged for Jobs: A Planning Handbook. PREP-10.
Banta, Trudy W.
An extensive review of the literature on the problem of preparing the disadvantaged for jobs has been compiled. The study includes information on a nation-wide survey of exemplary job-oriented education programs for the disadvantaged conducted jointly by private industry and the schools. Finally, three seminars were held for businessmen, educators, and other community leaders in Knoxville, Denver and New York City to test the seminar as a method of disseminating the material compiled by the study and to stimulate interest in further cooperative efforts. It is believed that the experience gained in the three trial seminars has provided a set of guidelines that could be helpful to others who might wish to hold such a seminar in other communities. Accordingly a handbook has been developed in order to convey an understanding of the objectives of a "Seminar on Preparing the Disadvantaged for Jobs" and of the means which may be employed to attain these objectives. This project was funded by the Office of Education under its Targeted Communications Program. A related document is ED 034 085. (ON)
