An Area Approach to Continuing Education, Report of Study and Recommendations for a Coordinated System of Continuing Education for the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District, Educational Service Series, Number 16.
Kleis, Russell J.
This report is the result of a 1967 study by representative citizens of the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District. Their task was to propose a system to assure access to continuing education for local adults and out of school youth, to propose roles and relationships for the public educational institutions, to suggest how these institutions should relate to other relevant public and private agencies, to recommend patterns of administration and finance, and to maintain all possible freedom and autonomy for the individuals and organizations involved. Data were obtained on the Muskegon educational system, the population to be served, and legal, historical, and fiscal background. Task force and related reports were prepared, and basic recommendations were made for an area system of continuing education encompassing public schools, community colleges, and community agencies and councils, together with specific steps for the year beginning September 1, 1967. (The document includes 25 charts and tables, two maps, and seven appendixes.) (ly)
