A Study of CETA/Vocational Education Coordination, Cooperation and Collaboration in Kentucky. Final Report.
Lamar, Carl F.; Owens, Devert J.
More cooperation between Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs and vocational education programs is both desirable and feasible, concludes this year-long study in Kentucky. The study was conducted (1) to determine the feasibility of developing a plan for coordinating vocational education resources and supporting services to serve more effectively the economically disadvantaged, unemployed, and underemployed CETA clients in Kentucky; and (2) to identify the issues, concerns, problems and barriers which have prevented the establishment of productive working relationships between CETA-related personnel and vocational education personnel throughout the state. Information on CETA and vocational education was gathered from legislation, prime sponsors, state plans, and from meetings attended and/or questionnaires answered by more than 600 persons involved in the two programs. The major conclusions of the study were that the problems between CETA and vocational education have been caused by insufficient communication, philosophical differences, turf protection, uncoordinated planning, and limited use of their advisory groups. Recommendations call for coordination between CETA and vocational education personnel in the development of common objectives for working with the economically disadvantaged. (KC)
