Job Corps Education Program Guide. ETA Handbook No. 401.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Youth Programs.
This guide is directed to education program administrators and basic education teachers in Job Corps Centers to help them understand how their functions relate to those of the center and to federal regulations and policies, and also to pass on some of the program experience accumulated by Job Corps teachers and administrators during the last dozen years. The first two chapters outline the program, the policies, and policy sources which define the education administrator's authority and responsibility, whether such policies are specifically directed to the administrator or to the operating agency or corporation and delegated through the center director. They include what the administrator and teachers need to know to meet statutory and administrative requirements for a basic education program in the Job Corps. The last two chapters are directed to both administrators and teachers. They deal with basic teaching strategies and include recommendations, discussions, and suggestions for program improvement and enrichment. The section considers matters of general interest and concern, such as ways of introducing controlled variety into Job Corps education programs and improving the morale and motivation of both teachers and students.
