STATUS REPORT ON CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN CALIFORNIA HIGHER EDUCATION.
BROSSMAN, SIDNEY W.; AND OTHERS
THIS REPORT ON ADULT EDUCATION AND EXTENSION PROGRAMS IN ALL PHASES OF CALIFORNIA'S SYSTEM OF PUBLIC HIGHER EDUCATION TRACES THE EFFORTS TO COORDINATE CONTINUING EDUCATION IN CALIFORNIA SINCE THE COORDINATING COUNCIL AUTHORIZED THE STATE COMMITTEE ON CONTINUING EDUCATION IN 1963. THE JUNIOR COLLEGES CONTINUE TO PROVIDE THE GREATEST NUMBER OF ADULT EDUCATION COURSES IN CALIFORNIA. IN ADDITION, FULL-TIME ENROLLMENTS IN JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE RISING, AND BOTH GRADED AND UNGRADED ADULT CLASSES ARE ALSO INCREASING. CONTINUING EDUCATION IS OFFERED BY ALL JUNIOR COLLEGES THROUGHOUT THE STATE. MOST COURSES ARE GRADED AND ARE DESIGNED TO MEET SCHEDULES AND NEEDS OF PART-TIME STUDENTS. MOST STUDENTS IN JUNIOR COLLEGE, CONTINUING EDUCATION CLASSES ARE ENROLLED ON A PART-TIME BASIS, AND LITTLE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE REGARDING THEIR AGE GROUPS, EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUNDS, OCCUPATIONS, OR OBJECTIVES. A STUDY IN THIS AREA IS BEING COMPLETED BY THE COUNCIL. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION SUBMIT AN ANNUAL CONTINUING EDUCATION REPORT ON THE PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES TO THE STATE COMMITTEE, INCLUDING DATA ON EXTENT AND CHARACTER OF COURSE OFFERINGS, LOCATION OF CLASSES, ENROLLMENTS, AND ADMINISTRATION DATA.
