CETA: Manpower Programs under Local Control.
Mirengoff, William; Rindler, Lester
This document presents the final report of a study conducted by the Committee on Evaluation and Training Programs to assess the impact of CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act) on manpower programs. The report examines the differences between CETA Title I programs and their predecessors and compares legislative goals with results. It also examines the impact of public service employment programs on the structurally oriented programs of Title I and the degree to which the primary objective of Title V (creation of new jobs) is achieved. Chapter 1 of ten chapters provides an overview of CETA history, a summary of CETA objectives, and a summary of the evaluation committee's conclusions in relation to accomplishments, problems and recommendations, and policy issues. Chapters 2-9 discuss the major findings under the following categories: resources and allocations; manpower planning; administration; program choices; the delivery of Title I services; public service employment; clientele; and program effectiveness. The last chapter summarizes the major findings and recommendations under the following topics: allocation of resources; substantive aspects of CETA programs; administrative processes; and institutional relationships. Included in the appendixes are a glossary of manpower acronyms; the calculation formula for the job creation ratio; highlights of the proposals and recommendations made by the National Commission for Manpower Policy; and statistical tables.
