Adult Education Association of U.S.A., Washington, DC.
Based on a project on adult basic education conducted in 1966 by the Adult Education Association of the U.S.A., this document provides a detailed description of regional and national conference activities, together with the roster, programs, speeches, papers, and working materials developed during the project. In general, the regional conferences at San Francisco, Kansas City, Chicago, Atlanta, and Newark each consisted of an orientation to the total project and to the purpose and pattern of the conference itself, a keynote speech, panel, or other introduction to a broad problem area, a development of the need for interagency coordination around adult basic education in order to wage the poverty attack most effectively, an analysis of obstacles to interagency coordination, a discussion of existing "model" programs, and an effort to develop a tactic, strategy, or organized endeavor to improve interagency coordination in each state. The document also includes advisory committee meetings, group reports, and other matters from the first and final national consultations, a formal evaluation, action recommendations, general commentary on the project, and an appendix.
