Concerted Services in Minnesota: An Evaluation of Developmental Change. Center Research and Development Report No. 7.
Mann, Louis; And Others
The concerted Services in Training and Education (CSTE) program was designed at the federal level to coordinate the resources of all appropriate federal agencies and related state agencies in rural development. The pilot Minnesota program focused on alternative strategies in area development, specifically a rural outmigration area with low income, underemployment, and lack of industry. This evaluation rates the Minnesota CSTE program in terms of its performance of four functions: research, coordination, education, and development. The program was judged successful in identifying through the research function the opportunities available to the disadvantaged. On the basis of the priorities established by research, resources of various public and private agencies were combined to fill needs for training and job development in the coordinating function, which was considered to be of major importance. A randomly selected sample of trainees responded favorably to the various training opportunities, and showed optimism about their futures.
