Greenwood, Katy; And Others
This report describes the ways in which the funds for supplemental vocational assistance provided by Title II, Part A, section 204 of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) amendments of 1978 have been used to provide services for eligible CETA participants in Texas. Outlined first are the climate and the background of CETA/education coordination and linkages. The intent and regulations pertaining to Title II, section 204 are explained. Reviewed next are previous studies on CETA/vocational education coordination. A framework is provided for assessing section 204 in Texas. In a discussion of the status of section 204 in Texas the following areas are covered: non-financial agreements, prime sponsor attitudes, and current and potential program/service deliverer attitudes. A national survey of state 204 programs is summarized, with particular attention to distribution and allocation of 204 funds, types and levels of education programs using 204 funds, scheduling patterns of 204 programs, monitoring/assessment of 204 programs, and significant aspects of individual programs. Conclusions and recommendations are made concerning legislative provisions, assumptions underlying section 204, communicating the opportunities of section 204, and attitudes concerning the section. (Other Education for Work Linkage Project reports are available separately--see note.) (MN)
