Coordination of Continuing Education and Community Services in Oregon.
Oregon State Educational Coordinating Council, Salem.
This report suggests ways to better provision of adult education and community service programs in the state of Oregon, and to avoidance of conflict and duplication. The increasing involvement of private and community colleges and other agencies will make duplication likely and informal coordination difficult. There are areas in the state not being served and functions (such as programs for the disadvantaged) not being served; the scope of programs has been limited by the "self-supporting" policy. All educational agencies in the state should accept responsibility for providing adult education and community service programs; they should give particular emphasis to program for the disadvantaged; and they should be provided adequate staff and resources for multiservice programs in their community or region. Local coordinating councils should be created; types of programs should be divided among local educational agencies; state and federal aid should be available; and the State Educational Coordinating Council should coordinate and harmonize programs of state and private institutions and provide continuous review of needs and services.
