THE EXPRESSED RELIGIOUS EDUCATION NEEDS OF ADULTS OF TWO CONTRASTING EDUCATIONAL LEVELS, WITH THE TEACHERS' PERCEPTIONS OF THEIR EXPRESSIONS OF NEEDS.
LOESSNER, ERNEST J.
SIXTY SOUTHERN BAPTIST SUNDAY SCHOOL MEMBERS, BETWEEN 30 AND 60 YEARS, WERE STUDIED AS TO THEIR NEEDS, EXTENT OF SIMILAR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION NEEDS AT TWO EDUCATIONAL LEVELS, AND RECOGNITION OF THESE NEEDS BY THEIR TEACHERS. THE SAMPLE WAS DIVIDED INTO A LOWER EDUCATIONAL LEVEL AND UPPER LEVEL. AN AUTOCRATIC, CONTENT CENTERED TEACHING TECHNIQUE WAS USED, IN WHICH THERE WAS A LACK OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND INVOLVEMENT OF ADULT STUDENTS. TEACHERS WERE NOT INVOLVED WITH CLASS MEMBERS INFORMALLY OUTSIDE OF CLASS, WERE NOT AWARE OF MEMBERS' NEEDS, AND DID NOT FEEL IT IMPORTANT TO KNOW THEM. THERE WAS NO ATTEMPT TO RELATE THE BIBLE LESSONS TO DAILY LIVES. A CHECK LIST QUESTIONNAIRE AND PERSONAL INTERVIEW IDENTIFIED NEEDS, ATTITUDES, AND VALUE OF SUNDAY SCHOOL PARTICIPATION AND TEACHERS. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE DIFFERENT EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUNDS DID INFLUENCE THE KINDS OF NEEDS AND IMPORTANCE PLACED ON THEM. THE LOWER EDUCATIONAL LEVEL PARTICIPANTS DID INDICATE A GREATER INVOLVEMENT OF THEIR TEACHER IN THEIR LIVES AND TEACHER AWARENESS OF STUDENT NEEDS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE CREATIVE ASPECTS OF EDUCATION AND INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES WERE IGNORED AND RELIGIOUS NEEDS OF ADULTS WERE NOT MET.
