National Planning Association, Washington, DC. Center for Priority Analysis.
A study of duplications in public skill training programs in twenty American cities resulted in a two-volume report. Volume One (ED 068 706) summarized and drew conclusions from the individual city reports contained in Volume Two. "Skill training" is used to mean all programs whose major purpose is the imparting of marketable skills to enrollees preparing for their first skilled positions in the world of work. The cities studied in this regard are: Allentown, Pa.; Birmingham, Ala.; Boston, Mass.; Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago, Ill.; Denver, Colo.; Detroit, Mich.; Fort Worth, Tex.; Hartford, Conn.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Kansas City, Mo.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Memphis, Tenn.; New Orleans, La.; Portland, Ore.; Rochester, N.Y.; Sacramento, Calif.; Toledo, Ohio; Washington, D.C.; and Wilmington, Del. The narrative section for each city discusses occupational education, occupational offerings (selected services and student characteristics), overlap, duplications, and gaps, (programs compared with the local labor market needs and with population groups), and management, administration, and coordination. It concludes with a summary. Data tables accompany each city's report. (AG)
