Middle Cities Education Association, MI.
This report presents findings of surveys to determine the effects of the 1976 Vocational Education Amendments on the required coordination between the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) and postsecondary vocational education at the federal, state, and local levels. An introduction is followed by a discussion (chapter 2) of results of questionnaires administered to state vocational education directors and executive directors of state manpower services councils and state advisory councils for vocational education. Chapter 3 interprets outcomes of interviews with officials from CETA coordination units, Office of Education, and the Department of Labor. In chapter 4 data from two questionnaires administered to prime sponsors and vocational education directors of community colleges in Michigan, New Jersey, and Texas are analyzed. Chapter 5, comprising over one-half of the report, outlines findings from interviews with representatives from advisory councils for vocational education, manpower services councils, and the department or agency of education for each of the three states. Focus is on (1) councils and agencies involved in CETA-vocational education coordination, (2) state employment and training coordination, (3) state-local level coordination, (4) Supplemental Vocational Education Program (section 112) administration, and (5) staff perceptions of legislative impact. The final chapter summarizes the effects of the 1976 amendments and makes recommendations for increased coordination. (YLB)
