A STUDY OF THE PATTERNS OF ADULT EDUCATION IN SELECTED NEGRO CHURCHES (ED.D. THESIS).
WEBSTER, SHERMAN N.
DATA FOR THIS STUDY OF PROGRAM PLANNING AND SELECTION OF EDUCATIONAL METHODS, GOALS, AND TOPICS IN TEN LEADING NEGRO BAPTIST CHURCHES IN SOUTH CAROLINA WERE OBTAINED BY DIRECT OBSERVATION AND QUESTIONNAIRES FILLED OUT BY REPRESENTATIVES OF ADULT EDUCATION ORGANIZATIONS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT (1) THERE IS NO STANDARD ADULT LEADERSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM IN THE TEN CHURCHES, (2) GROUP DISCUSSION IS NOT LIKELY TO BE USED EXTENSIVELY FOR LEARNING AND DECISION MAKING AS LONG AS IT IS UNDERSTOOD TO BE A FORM OF ARGUMENT AND DEBATE, (3) EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND INTERESTS OF GROUP MEMBERS ARE NOT BEING MET, AND (4) GROUP MEMBERS WILL ACCELERATE EDUCATIONAL GROWTH BY BECOMING INCREASINGLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, REDUCING EXTERNAL CONTROL. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT NATIONAL AND STATE ORGANIZATIONS EMPLOY AT LEAST ONE PERSON, TRAINED IN GENERAL ADULT EDUCATION, AS DIRECTOR OF ADULT EDUCATION ACTIVITIES, THAT CHURCHES ESTABLISH EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS FOR ADULT LEADERS, AND THAT A STUDY BE MADE OF THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF THE MEMBERS ARE BEING MET UNDER THE PRESENT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM.
