An Analysis of Alternatives for the Implementation of Part A, Sec. 111 (2) (A) and (B) Payment to States of Public Law 94-482. Final Report.
This project analyzed the effects upon states of the implementation of Part A, Section 111 (2) (A) and (B) Payment to States of Public Law 94-482. Contacts were made with the fifty state directors of vocational education and, with the assistance of an advisory committee, one inquiry document and accompanying definitions were developed. The document was pilot tested with the state director of Arizona. After modifications were made, the inquiry document was sent to the fifty state directors. All fifty responded. Three areas were studied: (1) state administrative funding and staffing, (2) state trends in administrative staffing, workload and state legislative support, and (3) state administrative services and activities in relationship to the percentage of staff time devoted to each. Analyses of the data indicated that most larger states were not optimistic about receiving state legislative support for additional state administrative activities and services. Many states were having staffing problems in fulfilling federal mandates and were redirecting state administrative staff activities and services from some leadership activities to mandated compliance activities. Eleven recommendations were made for alternative actions by the states. (Author/JH)
