White, Les; Hamilton, Randy H.
This publication is a "Design for Action" of the Institute for Local Self Government to re-direct the vocational-technical local government education and training programs through the community colleges to provide urban government manpower. The community college is uniquely qualified to provide significant continuing education and training needed by local government career service personnel. The study presents workable guidelines for curriculum construction based on operational realities. It also provides job specifications for public service capable of broad application throughout the country. The design employs a comparatively new training technique, role playing; career ladders and similar concepts are also utilized. Programs are described which can be established in community colleges for the following occupational categories: (1) Inspection Services, (2) Civil Engineering, (3) Accounting, (4) Library Services, (5) Recreation, (6) Planning, (7) Government Supervison and Management. Capitalizing on its position as research and education institute created by and serving local governments, and its intimate knowledge of local government, the Institute's report represents a realistic planning tool of greatest possible usefulness for local governments and education systems throughout the United States.
