Development of Policy Options to Maximize Access to Community Colleges by CETA-Eligible Individuals.
Jenkins, Hobart G.
In 1981, a study was conducted to predict the possible effects of increased tuition and enrollment limitations in Washington on the community college enrollment of persons eligible for Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs. Within four sample geographic areas, historical and projected data were collected from all CETA prime sponsors and matching community colleges. CETA sources were asked to provide data on the enrollment of CETA students in fall 1978, 1979, and 1980 in seven vocational program areas and to project community college enrollments for fall 1981 by program category. College sources were asked to provide information on the number of financial aid awards made to CETA-eligible students, who were not CETA supported, during fall 1979 through fall 1980; on enrollments in the seven program areas; and on projected enrollments and financial aid awards for fall 1981. The study report details methodology and presents findings with respect to CETA-referred enrollments; differences between trend line projections and vocational directors' estimates for vocational enrollments; CETA enrollment peculiarities; CETA-college relations; CETA training formats; combined training options; adult basic education and English as a second language problems; advisory qroups; disadvantaged clientele; shared funding potentials; and referral estimates. In addition, study conclusions and policy and administrative options are discussed. Data tables and relevant documentation are aopended. (KL)
