A Plan for Implementing a Program of Continuing Adult Educational Services.
Dakin, William Robert
From the analysis of the literature and the opinions of a jury of experts in adult education, 14 basic steps for implementing a program of noncredit, informal, continuing adult educational services were derived. A local governing board, appointed as sponsoring agency, appoints a Director of Adult Education to administer the program, and a lay advisory committee. These officials develop a sound philosophy and a set of program objectives, establish operating policies and procedures, and determine individual and community needs and interests and plan programs to meet them. There must be adequate financing and facilities, qualified teachers and leaders and inservice training for them, and effective publicity and information about the program. The director should establish a complete plan of administrative procedures. A continuous evaluation of the staff, program, and participants must be provided. (author/aj)
