A REVIEW OF PRESENT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO OLDER ADULTS IN CALIFORNIA'S PUBLIC ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM.
DEGABRIELE, EUGENE H.
ADMINISTRATORS OF ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN ADULT SCHOOLS AND JUNIOR COLLEGES IN CALIFORNIA WERE SURVEYED IN MAY 1967 AS TO WAYS IN WHICH THEIR PROGRAMS WERE SERVING THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF ADULTS AGED 50 AND OVER. FINE ARTS, CRAFTS, HOMEMAKING, BUSINESS EDUCATION, AMERICANIZATION, CIVIC EDUCATION AND SPECIAL FIELDS, VOCATIONAL AND INDUSTRIAL ARTS, AND ENGLISH, SPEECH ARTS, AND FOREIGN LANGUAGES WERE THE AREAS OF STUDY DRAWING THE GREATEST NUMBER OF OLDER ADULTS. ABOUT HALF THE SCHOOLS STATED THAT SPECIFIC CLASSES AND LECTURE SERIES FOR OLDER ADULTS HAD BEEN ORGANIZED, AND MOST ALSO REPORTED THAT OLDER ADULTS WERE BEING SERVED BY REGULAR COUNSELING PROGRAMS. TWELVE PRINCIPAL EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, HEADED BY DEVELOPMENT OF SKILLS AND INTERESTS SUITED TO LATER LIFE, RETIREMENT PLANNING, AND IMPROVED UNDERSTANDING OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF AGING, WERE NAMED, TOGETHER WITH TEN PROBLEM AREAS RELATING TO TRANSPORTATION, FACILITIES, STAFFING, COMMUNITY COOPERATION AND SUPPORT, BUDGET LIMITATIONS, STUDENT MOTIVATION AND ATTENDANCE, AND THE IDENTIFICATION OF EDUCATIONAL NEEDS. (THE DOCUMENT ALSO INCLUDES 45 EXAMPLES OF COURSES AND LECTURE SERIES.) (LY)
