Continuation of Interpretive Study of Cooperative Efforts of Private Industry and the Schools to Provide Job-Oriented Education Programs for the Disadvantaged. Final Report.
Tennessee Univ., Knoxville. Occupational Research and Development Coordinating Unit.
This continuation phase of the interpretive study attempted to promote the dissemination and utilization of materials and methods which were developed in the initial phase. The purpose was to encourage the initiation and improvement of job-oriented education programs for the disadvantaged through the cooperative efforts of all segments of the community. Information prepared in the initial phase was repackaged and directed specifically to the businessmen, educators, and community agency representatives who would form the audience for a seminar on job training and education for the disadvantaged. State vocational/technical education directors participating in a workshop were assisted by project staff in sponsoring seminars in their home states. Although seminars resulted in only three states, those who participated expressed their belief that the seminar was an initial step toward achievement of the important community objective of more cooperation between industry and the schools in preparing the disadvantaged for employment. The report of information compiled in the initial phase is available as ED 027 442. (Author/BH)
