Institutional Manpower Development and Training in New York State. Annual Report (July 1, 1970-June 30, 1971).
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Special Occupational Services.
This annual report is the ninth in a series of reports concerning the activities of the New York State Education Department in the manpower training effort, and it offers a narrative description and rationale of the activities of the Bureaus of Manpower Program Development and Manpower Program Supervision during 1971. The goals of the manpower training program are to: (1) provide training and financial assistance to unemployed and underemployed persons, (2) teach workers new skills and upgrade old ones, (3) alleviate the worst effects of displacement due to automation and the cybernetic revolution, (4) negate, to the extent possible, the intolerable human degradation resulting from social, cultural, and economic disadvantagement, and (5) transform the tax consumer into a tax producer. During 1971, a total of 185 projects were developed to provide training for over 37,318 persons in a wide variety of programs ranging from limited 3-week employability orientation sessions to highly sophisticated year-long courses in TV service and repair. Supervisory activities during 1971 were associated with: (1) fiscal accountability, (2) equipment accountability, (3) individual trainee referrals, (4) project progress monitoring, (5) inservice training direction, (6) curriculum development and evaluation, and (7) procedural review.
