Annotation: The Family Support Act of 1988 (FSA), which must be implemented by October 1, 1990, requires Federal, State, and local governments to reform the public welfare system by educating and strengthening families and moving them toward self-sufficiency.
Abstract: Key among the partnerships that must be formed is that between welfare and education, since the FSA clearly recognizes education as a primary component in helping families avoid long-term dependence on public assistance. The FSA requires States to make educational services available to participants under the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills Training Program (JOBS) and provides Federal matching funds to assist in these efforts. The report highlights FSA provisions relevant to both welfare and education systems, opportunities offered by the FSA for the two systems to meet their own and shared goals for populations at risk, and the importance and benefits of collaboration between educational and human services in implementing the FSA. Successful educational programs for young people and adults are examined, and an appendix summarizes major provisions of the FSA.
