One-hour telephone discussions with state school-to-work (STW) directors provided information on STW state governance, partnership formation and funding, and implementation progress in 27 states. The most obvious difference in structures at the state level for implementing STW was whether STW responsibilities were assigned to a governing entity with a broader policy mandate or with a narrower function relating specifically to STW matters. States created a single-tier system of local STW partnerships or a two-tier system of regional and local partnerships. The primary purpose of regional bodies was to provide technical assistance to local partnerships. All 27 states received federal development and implementation grants. The most common uses of development grant funds were for forming substate partnerships, developing a state plan and preparing an application for an implementation grant, and developing strategies for improving public awareness of STW concepts. Conformity to federal legislative requirements and encouragement of local innovation appeared to be priorities in STW development, influencing the success of implementation. Successes in building state-level cooperation, promoting of STW concepts among key players, and creating materials were identified. Obstacles included the following: lack of understanding of what STW means among parent and students, school staff, and some state agency staff and issues limiting employer involvement (employer liability, child labor laws, and lack of financial incentives).

Building Strong Families (BSF) project data collection, 2005-2008, United States ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
The Building Strong Families (BSF) project is comprised of a four part dataset. Part 1, the BSF Eligibility and Baseline Survey Data file; Part 2, the BSF 15-Month Follow-up Survey Data file; Part 3, the program participation data file; Part 4, the BSF 15-month follow-up analysis file. This study examined the effectiveness of programs designed to improve child well-being and strengthen the relationships of low-income couples through relationship skills education. It surveyed couples 15 months after having applied and having been accepted into a Building Stronger Families (BSF) program at one of eight locations offering services to unwed couples expecting, or having recently had a baby. The first major focus of the study was family structure. Question topics included information on recently born children, as well as the parents and their relationship status. If the parents were still together, respondents were asked whether they were currently married or planned to marry in the future. If no longer together, reasons for the relationship ending were explored. The second major focus queried respondents about parental involvement with their child or children. They were then asked to rate their perceived quality as parents, their communication skills, and cooperation between parental responsibilities. Respondents were also questioned regarding the amount of time spent by each parent with their child, including playing games, feeding, and changing diapers. The third major focus asked respondents about their relationships. They were asked to give their opinions of marriage and their level of satisfaction in their current relationship. Respondents were also asked to list the frequency, if applicable, of various occurrences within their relationship. Subjects included communication, enjoyment of each others' company, partner reliability, infidelity, and domestic violence
