CETA/Vocational Education Collaboration. Summary of Proceedings (Washington, D.C., June 24, 1981).
Syracuse Research Corp., Syracuse, NY.
At a June, 1981, meeting, representatives of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) organizations and vocational education organizations arrived at the following conclusions regarding the issues in collaboration that warrant attention in the reauthorization process of the CETA and the Vocational Education Act: (1) the coincidence of reauthorization of legislation represents an opportunity for further collaboration between CETA and vocational education; (2) there is a wide variation in the present state of collaboration among various cities, states, and regions; (3) set-asides are not considered synonomous with collaboration between the two systems; however, legislative mandates for collaboration are strongly supported; (4) CETA and vocational education collaboration would be facilitated by actions in legislative reauthorization; (5) the two systems should be tied in with other national priorities such as economic development, labor shortages in high skill areas, and defense needs; (6) the federal government should encourage training of the handicapped and disadvantaged through each training system, conduct research and development, and disseminate exemplary practices; (7) a demonstration of CETA/vocational education could not be accomplished before the reauthorization; and (8) issue briefing papers should be written about the ideas discussed in the meeting. (The document includes a summary of major discussion issues, a detailed description of the day's proceedings, the meeting agenda, and a list of the attendees.) (KC)
