First Annual Report of the National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education Presented to the President of the United States and the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare.
National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education, Washington, DC.
This report describes the Council's major activities during 1965-67, its work plan for 1967-68, and several recommendations which will assist program coordination and effectiveness. Findings of the inventory of Federally-supported programs in extension and continuing education (contracted to Greenleigh Associates, Inc.) indicate that program development is markedly uneven across the country, and a number of Federal agencies and offices could not complete the inventory questionnaire with a high degree of reliability or detail because the program information required was not available. Concern was expressed about the lack of trained personnel to develop and implement programs. The Council is developing program evaluation criteria and (with regard to Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965) recommends: (1) continuation of the grant program; (2) continuation of the 75% Federal - 25% non Federal matching requirements for the next two years; and, (3) allocations of at least 10% of Title I appropriations for special demonstration and experimental projects. (Appendixes include a summary of the Greenleigh findings, the Council personnel, and a description of the Council's field trips.) (dm)
