Coordination of JTPA Programs, Vocational Education, and Technical Education.
South Carolina State Council on Vocational and Technical Education, Columbia.
This biennial report provides an evaluation of the South Carolina vocational education program delivery system assisted under the Carl D. Perkins Act and the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA). It focuses on the adequacy and effectiveness of the delivery system in achieving the purposes of the two acts. These findings of the State Council on Vocational and Technical Education are highlighted: more workshops were offered covering a number of topics related to JTPA programs; increased funding of JTPA programs could result in improved services and better qualified personnel; and paperwork required for participation in JTPA programs is too cumbersome. State council commendations and recommendations are then listed. Other sections describe the report format, data collection methodology, and the South Carolina JTPA delivery system. Tables and charts illustrate allocation of funds, expenditures, and program performance objectives and results for program years 1990 and 1991. The 10-question survey instrument is then provided. The following four sections contain the responses of these groups of respondents: state JTPA administrative unit, service delivery areas, secondary education (school district coordinators and vocational center directors), and technical colleges. A glossary of terms concludes the report. (YLB)
