CETA/Education Linkages: Case Studies and Recommendations.
Engbretson, William E.; Reter, Ronald F.
A national literature search was conducted on the state of the art that identified linkage activities and model linkage programs; a survey and follow-up questionnaire that identified 107 exemplary projects and received materials on 40 of them; and visits to 30 projects in the Chicago area and Illinois, California, Nevada, Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. Subsequently, case studies were prepared on 20 of the projects (included in this report), and a series of recommendations were made to the governor of Illinois, to agencies involved in CETA, to the Department of Commerce and Community Affairs, to the Illinois Interagency Coordination Committee, to the State boards of education and higher education, to institutions of higher education, to CETA Prime Sponsors and Program Directors, and to various training agencies. Recommendations were aimed at developing a comprehensive plan for statewide cooperation between CETA and the educational community, ordered by the governor, and funded through various agencies involved. It was also recommended that additional linkages be developed between institutions of higher learning and CETA programs, that materials be developed by the board of education, and that exemplary features of some of the programs profiled in the case studies be adapted for use in the Illinois statewide linkage project.
