A Specific Response to the National Institute of Education Under the Requirements as Set Forth Within Their Document Entitled: "Scope of Work."
Flores, T. R.
The study sought to document how the National Institute of Education sponsored Mountain-Plains Career Education Model Four (CEM4) is improving on the advancing the family residential approach. This was accomplished by comparing aspects of the seven programs by way of: (1) a collection and review of available literature and reports, (2) site visitations to four programs, and (3) personal contact with the Federal-level sponsoring agencies of the six other programs to determine their perceptions of the programs. These six programs are: Arizona Job Colleges, Inc.; Choanoke Area Development Association, Inc.--Family Development Program; Manpower Education and Training, Inc. (all sponsored by the Office of Economic Opportunity); and the United Tribes, Roswell, and Madera Employment Training Centers (all sponsored by the Bureau of Indian Affairs). All seven programs are described and compared in the areas of history, governance, location, facilities, management/staffing/budget, target population/capacity, recruitment/placement, program, program support, research/evaluation, costs, relationship with other agencies, and plans for continuance. The study concludes that CEM4 as operated by Mountain-Plains represents the most advanced stage of the family residential educational concept and that its systematic research approach possesses the capability of revealing the concept's true worth.
