A Study of Carl D. Perkins and JTPA Programs and Activities in Wisconsin.
Paris and Associates, Madison, WI.
Analysis of survey responses from 98 Wisconsin education/job programs administrators resulted in the following recommendations, among others: (1) Private Industry Council (PIC) members must play a more meaningful role in the oversight of local programs and should receive inservice education from the Division of Employment and Training Policy (DETP) to be able to do that; (2) the DETP should help clarify issues regarding conflict of interest for PIC members; (3) a state/local task force should develop a code of ethics for PIC members; (4) the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), the Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education and the Department of Public Instruction personnel must continue to increase service levels for women and older workers; and (5) personnel at all JTPA levels should work together to determine the best strategies to provide more supportive services and to extend participants' time in programs as appropriate. The goals of the study included determining the extent to which Wisconsin's Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act (VEA) and JTPA administration during 1986-87 met statutory intent. Limitations of the study were the following: (1) the mixture of random and nonrandom sampling techniques; (2) the unknown impact that combining survey techniques (questionnaire, personal interview, and telephone interview) could have; and (3) the paucity of quantifiable data on the student outcomes of special needs populations for VEA activities. (In addition to a three-page bibliography, the document contains 40 tables.) (CML)
