Rural Job Creation--A Study of CETA Linkage with Economic Development.
Bruno, A. Lee; Wright, L. M., Jr.
This study examines how jobs are created in rural areas by or with the help of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs involved with local economic development activities. It consists of five chapters. Chapter 1 reviews literature pertinent to the historical perspective and key elements of economic development, economic development in rural areas, and factors affecting CETA linkage with economic development programs. Next, an interpretive analysis of 20 cases of CETA-linked economic development programs researched during the course of the study is presented in chapter 2; emphasis of the analysis is on social/rural concepts in the community, program characteristics, interagency coordination, program outcomes, and program models. Chapter 3 offers program development guidelines in the following areas: researching options, formulating strategy, economic development strategy matrices, developing linkages, and funding strategies. Discussed in chapter 4 are a rationale for program evaluation, types of evaluation, and structuring an evaluation methodology. The final chapter discusses the need for more experimentation by CETA program operators. A bibliography and three appendixes containing tables of case study models, economic resources, and the text of CETA follow. (A related report containing the 20 case studies is available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
