Education for Work: Extent of Coordination in Texas. Linkage Series No. 1.
Greenwood, Katy; And Others
The first in a series of publications addressing issues of linkage and coordination of job training programs in Texas, this paper focuses on the background of federal and state events requiring new strategies for coordination of job training programs in Texas and examines the nature and purpose of coordination of job training activities and related support services in Texas. In an outline of the development of manpower programs in Texas and the implementation of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), particular attention is paid to the State Employment and Training Council and the Advisory Council for Technical-Vocational Education in Texas. Described next are the historical perspectives for coordinating federally funded programs in Texas and the coordination mechanisms currently in operation in the state. The current extent of coordination of job training and related support services at the state and local levels is also examined. Suggestions are give for alternative ways of establishing an employment and training policy for Texas as well as for coordinating currently existing job training and support services in the state. (Other Education for Work Linkage Project reports are available separately--see note.) (MN)
