WHAT RESEARCH SAYS ABOUT PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT EDUCATION.
AKER, GEORGE F.; CARPENTER, WILLIAM L.
THIS REVIEW OF RESEARCH ON PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT EDUCATION INDICATES THAT, WHILE THERE HAS BEEN IMPRESSIVE GROWTH AND ACHIEVEMENT, ADULTS WHO LACK HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMAS OR EVEN BASIC LITERACY SKILLS ARE NOT BEING REACHED. STUDIES ARE NEEDED TO DETERMINE WHY THESE ADULTS ARE LEAST LIKELY TO PARTICIPATE IN PROGRAMS. STUDIES MADE OF CURRICULUMS, CLIENTELE, DROPOUTS, FINANCING, PROMOTION, AND EVALUATION SUGGEST THAT PUBLIC SCHOOL ADULT EDUCATION NEEDS ITS OWN PROGRAM OF DIVERSE OFFERINGS, MORE QUALIFIED PERSONNEL, SENSITIVITY TO COMMUNITY NEEDS, MORE ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT, PROMOTION, AND A CONTINUING RESEARCH AND EVALUATION PROGRAM FOR EACH SCHOOL. FUTURE RESEARCH PROGRAMS NEED A COMMON DATA COLLECTION SYSTEM AND EXPERIMENTAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOR ADULT LEARNING RESEARCH. STUDIES SHOULD BE MADE OF (1) EVALUATIVE CRITERIA FOR CURRICULUMS, (2) TECHNIQUES OF COUNSELING ADULTS, AND (3) THE SKILLS REQUIRED OF TEACHERS, COUNSELORS, AND ADMINISTRATORS, AND THEIR PROBLEMS, TRAINING PROGRAMS, AND OBJECTIVES.
