THE FUTURE OF AMERICAN ADULT EDUCATION. TITLE I NEWSLETTER, 12.
WHITE, THURMAN J.
THE AUTHOR PREDICTS TEN FUTURE EVENTS THAT WILL MARK THE TRANSFORMATION FROM OPPORTUNITY TO REALITY OF EDUCATION FOR ALL AMERICANS. (1) THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL EMERGE WITH PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY FOR ADULT EDUCATION. (2) MORE INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION WILL OFFER ADVANCED DEGREES IN ADULT EDUCATION. (3) BY 1980, 20 PERCENT OF THE ADULT POPULATION WILL BE COMMITTED TO AT LEAST ONE PROGRAM OF PART-TIME STUDY. (4) ADULTS WILL BE PAID TO GO TO SCHOOL AS AN ORDINARY PRACTICE. (5) ADULT EDUCATION WILL EMERGE AS A MAJOR CONCERN OF SOCIAL SCIENTISTS. (6) "EASIER LEARNING IN LESS TIME," MADE POSSIBLE BY EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, WILL ENJOY A BRIEF PERIOD OF GENERAL ENTHUSIASM BY THE EDUCATIONAL SCIENTIST. (7) THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE WILL EMERGE AS THE FASTEST-GROWING SEGMENT OF ADULT EDUCATION. (8) THE ADULT EDUCATION ASSOCIATION WILL GAIN ENORMOUS STRENGTH AS THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ALL ADULT EDUCATORS. (9) COMPARATIVE ADULT EDUCATION WILL BECOME A FAVORITE STUDY OF PROFESSIONAL ADULT EDUCATORS. (10) A CONCERN FOR VALUES WILL REQUIRE ASSISTANCE OF PHILOSOPHERS IN DEVELOPING CURRICULUM. (THIS IS A REPRINT OF A SPEECH MADE AT THE TENNESSEE CONFERENCE FOR INSTITUTIONAL REPRESENTATIVES CONCERNING TITLE I, CONDUCTED AT NASHVILLE, ON AUGUST 4, 1967) (RT)
