Arnold, John D.
Program rationale, goals, and strategies are outlined in this description of Arizona-based centers which trained migrant workers in the use of microcomputers for business and clerical applications. Topics include the need to create new jobs for displaced farm workers, the assets farm workers bring to the business world, the training-related problems encountered, and the ways of supporting migrant workers placed in new jobs. Included is a brief history of the training agency, Portable Practical Educational Preparation-Training for Employment Centers (PPEP-TEC), and a list of six related references. (JHZ)
