Education and Training for Work in the Fifty States: A Compendium of State Policies

L. M. McDonnell, G. L. Zellman

This document introduces readers to a database that provides basic descriptive information about state policies and practices with regard to five education and training programs: secondary vocational education, postsecondary vocational education, the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), welfare-to-work programs, and state-funded job training. It differs from most reports issued by NCRVE in that it neither analyzes the design and implementation of particular policies nor assesses their effectiveness. The data comes from a survey of work-related education and training policies in the fifty states, and is available to researchers and members of the policy community through NCRVE.
