Educational Governance and Youth Employment Issues, Volume II.
Meyers, Russell W.; And Others
This second volume of a report on Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA)-education collaboration focuses on educational governance and employment issues. Part I outlines the education governance structure as it exists at state and local levels. Since the primary focus is on public education at the elementary and secondary school levels, the governance of higher education (the vocational education system and community college) is described, but in less detail. The four most common forms of state governance structure are identified as well as some less common forms. It is concluded that these "models" reflect variations in answers to the questions of how the Chief State School Officer (CSSO) and the State Board of Education (SBE) members are selected and what the structural relationships between the governor, SBE, and the CSSO are. Part II gives detailed information on the role of the different levels (state and local boards) in setting the standards in specific issue areas and providing the framework for them to be carried out. Using extensive charts recently published (1978) by the National Institute of Education, a state-by-state analysis is given of four issues: curriculum, guidance and counseling, secondary school graduation requirements, and educational personnel certification standards.
