Organization for Service in Adult and Continuing Education.
Laws, Ruth M.
Educational philosophy and planning in the Delaware Department of Public Instruction must be conducive to broadly based adult and continuing education, especially for the large proportion of Delaware adults who are undereducated and disadvantaged. Local school district responsibility should include budgeting, staffing, promotion, and program planning. Program planning and promotion should entail such steps as selling the concept of adult and continuing education to educators, administrators, school boards, teachers, and the legislature; promoting adult basic education; improving outreach by extensive use of mass media; better coordination of existing Federally supported programs; inservice teacher training in adult basic education; insistence on professional training for educators of disadvantaged adult students; cooperative efforts to serve migrants and seasonal agricultural workers; and multiple adult education service centers using programed instruction and specialized teaching. (Statistics on state population, public school enrollments, and adult educational background are included.) (ly)
