Forging New Relationships: The CETA/School Nexus. A Study in the Coordination of Education and Employment Services. Interim Report #1.
Rist, Ray C.; And Others
An assessment is provided of the ability of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) prime sponsors and local educational agencies to cooperate in the development of innovative educational and training programs for low-income youth. The data presented are based on observations and interviews conducted at 40 of 47 operational sites administered by Youthwork, Inc. Following an introduction are four substantive chapters, one on each of the four program areas where projects were selected and funded: expanded private sector involvement, job creation through youth operated projects, academic credit for work experience, and career information. Key areas of investigation in each of the programmatic areas include the form and content of CETA/school collaboration and communication, the impact of the Youth Employment and Training Program's 22 percent incentive on inter-institutional cooperation, and the question of whether the Youthwork programs have created duplication and redundancy in efforts to assist in-school youth. Recommendations for the Department of Labor and Youthwork, Inc. are located at the end of each chapter. A methodological appendix includes two analysis packets covering CETA/school relations and a statement of key issues on that topic. (YLB)
