The Implementation of CETA in Ohio. R&D Monograph 44. Final Report.
Ripley, Randall B.
This last of a series of reports on the implementation of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) in Ohio, from the inception of the program in 1974 through mid-1976, compares 16 of the 17 prime sponsors in the State. The monograph describes and explains patterns of influence over decisionmaking about CETA at the local level, a variety of programmatic choices, and patterns of client usage and service. Comments are also made on the roles of the State and of the Chicago regional office of the Department of Labor with regard to Ohio prime sponsors. The authors conclude there are three main problems and three principal achievements of CETA in Ohio. The problems relate to decreased or low level service to the most disadvantaged of eligible CETA clients, less attention to training and work-experience programs, and a vague and shifting Federal role in CETA. The principal achievements discussed are innovative and seemingly successful programs developed by some prime sponsors in the face of political and economic pressures, growing professionalism of the CETA system, and some meaningful and influential involvement in CETA decisionmaking through manpower planning councils. Recommendations are made regarding client service patterns, program comprehensiveness, public service employment, manpower planning councils, the regional office of the Department of Labor, and the State. The report also includes charts illustrating models of CETA implementation features in prime sponsorships, tables, and a bibliography. (LMS)
