Strategies for the Inclusion of the Spanish Speaking in the Implementation of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973.
Bray, Javier
The most obvious factor common to the Spanish Speaking is their lack of control and minimal influence over institutions and programs affecting them. This characterizes their situation as one of subordination to the dominant culture's external powers, followed by the denial of occupational opportunities which are manifested in the high unemployment and underemployment of Spanish Speaking and their systematic exclusion from administrative and executive positions. The Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA) provides for some participation by all community-based and client groups in local manpower programs. Prime sponsors are to establish advisory councils which must include a cross-section of citizens and special interest groups, especially those for whom the services are intended, and must have representation on the State Manpower Councils. Programs of "demonstrated effectiveness" are to be continued and their services used as deemed appropriate. Thus, the rationale for developing new strategies to include the Spanish Speaking in the planning and implementation of manpower programs is a process-oriented educational program locally established and controlled. Yet, these could be hindered by the lack of informational, financial, and human resources to plan and implement new manpower programs; by organizational patterns characteristic to program management and delivery; and by attitudes and expectations resulting from past practices and built-in interests.
