Early Perceptions of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act.
National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC.
A Committee on Evaluation of Employment and Training Programs was established by the National Academy of Sciences to assess the impact of the passage of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), which created a shift of control of manpower programs from Federal to State and local officials. At the first committee meeting a panel of five participants, representing Congress; the Department of Labor; and State, county, and city governments, presented its perceptions and expectations of CETA. The document contains the five presentations of panel members (Daniel Krivit, William Kolberg, George Basich, Jon Weintraub, and Thomas Nagle) which deal with the issues and problems of decentralization, decategorization, Federal role, State and local role, capabilities of local government, political leadership and ramifications, program coordination and cooperation, public employment provisions, management decisions, training needs, and funding.
