Adult Education Goals for Los Angeles; A Working Paper for the Los Angeles Goals Program.
Dordick, H. S.
In this working paper on adult education in the Los Angeles area, future needs for university extension and other specialized educational services outside the formal educational structure of the state are discussed. Professional continuing education and the needs of housewives and retired persons, high school and university dropouts, persons needing vocational skill training or retraining, immigrants seeking citizenship and employment, and other clientele groups, are considered. Such major problems and obstacles as geographic distance and access, lack of funds and facilities, and rising costs are described, together with instructional methods and aids meant to alleviate these constraints to growth. Also included are estimates of adult education enrollment in greater Los Angeles for 1980 and beyond. (ly)
