ADEQUACY OF PROVISION FOR ADULT EDUCATION IN SELECTED AREAS--RESEARCH PROJECT.
A SURVEY WAS TO BE MADE IN ENGLAND AND WALES TO ASSESS THE OVERALL ADEQUACY OF PROVISIONS MADE FOR ADULT EDUCATION BY LOCAL EDUCATION AUTHORITIES, UNIVERSITY EXTRAMURAL DEPARTMENTS, WORKERS' EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION DISTRICTS, AND VOLUNTEER ASSOCIATIONS WITH AN EDUCATIONAL FUNCTION. SIX AREAS WERE SELECTED USING STATISTICS ON TERMINAL EDUCATION AGE AND SOCIOECONOMIC COMPOSITION OF THE ADULT POPULATION FROM A 1961 CENSUS. THEY REPRESENTED HIGH TO LOW POINTS ON THE SCALE IN TERMS OF SOCIAL CLASS AND EDUCATIONAL COMPOSITION. IN EACH AREA, A RANDOM SAMPLE OF THE ADULTS WAS TO BE INTERVIEWED WITH A QUESTIONNAIRE ON KNOWLEDGE AND USE OF EXISTING ADULT EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES. ANOTHER QUESTIONNAIRE WAS DESIGNED FOR CURRENT PARTICIPANTS IN ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS. QUESTIONNAIRES AND INSTRUCTIONS TO INTERVIEWERS WERE INCLUDED. (LY)
