Civil Defense Adult Education, A Case Study of an Experimental Pilot Program in Florida.
Culbertson, Millicent Kicklighter
A study of the development and effectiveness of the Florida Pilot Program in Civil Defense Adult Education was conducted from the viewpoint of a participant observer and from data gathered from official records. An instrument developed to gauge the extent to which the objectives of the program were achieved was sent to the 66 counties where the program had been implemented. Replies were received from 56. The Florida program was carried out in the school administrative units. Some of the implications of the success of the program at the local level were the increase of interest and action in school and community survival plans, requests by adults for the Civil Defense Adult Education Class, discussions by adults of civil defense, motivation to learn about civil defense through mass media, publicity and civil defense programs by local radio stations, community groups, and displays, emphasis on teaching civil defense at the elementary and secondary school level. Increased understanding is still needed concerning attitudes of adults toward civil defense. (author/aj)
