Levitan, Sar A., Ed.; Mangum, Garth L., Ed.
A summary of an in-depth study of the training component of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), this volume consists of a series of findings and recommendations emerging from a national survey of 476 CETA prime sponsors. It provides a comprehensive review of CETA training based on the analysis of longitudinal data on the quality, effectiveness, and management of CETA occupational skill training as well as on complements to employability development such as basic education, English as a second language, and training for job search. Detailed summaries of 11 prime sponsors are also given. Included among the individual case studies are the following: "Baltimore, Maryland: the Rewards of Sound Management and Planning," by Gregory Wurzburg; "Dallas, Texas: The Burdens of Prosperity," by Robert McPherson; "Indianapolis, Indiana: Recovering from Troubles," by E. Earl Wright; "Montgomery County, Maryland: A Born-Again Prime Sponsor," by Marion W. Pines; "North Carolina Balance-of-State: Decentralization and Discontinuity," by Edward F. Dement; "Penobscot, Maine: Orientation for Change and Growth," by Andrew M. Sum and Paul E. Harrington; "San Francisco, California: The Politics of Race and Sex," by Garth L.
