Public-Service Employment: A Poorly Publicized Opportunity; Title IV in the 60's. IRCD Bulletin, Volume 8, Numbers 3 and 4, May-September 1972.
Goldberg, Gertrude S.; And Others
The first section of this issue of the Bulletin has to do with public service employment, a poorly understood social policy which must be defined before it can be evaluated as an anti-poverty strategy. The term public service employment (PSE) refers to the policy of using government funds to create jobs which serve a dual purpose: that of (1) providing paid employment for those unable to find work in the private sector of the economy, and (2) expanding vital services to people. Promising but surprisingly unnoticed legislative proposals seek to broaden, expand, or extend the Emergency Employment Act of 1971. The major criteria for evaluating PSE proposals include permanence, size, hiring preferences for the disadvantaged, community participation, and potential for upgrading. The second section is a digest of a longer report, "A Survey of Inservice Education Workshops." To understand past practices in inservice desegregation workshops, the authors examined a large body of Title IV, E.S.E.A. workshop reports. These workshop reports offer a body of knowledge about the design and effectiveness of holding small-group learning experiences to deal with the multiple and complex intellectual and human relation problems of school desegregation in an atmosphere of social change.
