Apparently even college campuses arent providing green jobs anymore. A survey by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (Aashe) showed that creation of new sustainability positions peaked in 2008, then dropped 31 percent in 2009, Dave Newport reported in The Chronicle of Higher Education on April 6, 2012.
Newport directs the Environmental Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder. That actually might be a better record than the Obama Administration has amassed in its much-toutedat least by administration officialsgreen jobs program.
The Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (ETA) found that ETA and grantees have reported achieving limited performance targets for serving and placing workers.
Grantees have reported serving 52,762 (42 percent) of the targeted 124,893 participants with 61 percent of training grant periods having elapsed and have reported placing 8,035 participants (10 percent) into employment out of the target of 79,854 participants. The rates at which grantees are achieving their performance goals have been increasing. However, with 61 percent of the training grant periods elapsed and only 10 percent of participants entered employment, there is no evidence that grantees will effectively use the funds and deliver targeted employment outcomes by the end of the grant periods.
