Emergent Patterns in LEA Adult Education.
Buchanan, Derek; Percy, Keith
This book deals with three aspects of adult non-vocational classes as provided directly by Local Education Authorities: fees charged in recent years and the association of variations in them with numbers of enrollments; variations in the provision of classes as between authorities of comparable size; and patterns of student enrollment as revealed in the records of a single community-college type center. Changes in down payment, length of session "bought," discriminatory charges for some classes, boundary, and minimum numbers required affect enrollments. Local factors affect provisions for classes made by authorities of comparable size. Patterns of enrollment reveal that classes in domestic and women's crafts, physical education, and arts and languages are common. Many authorities are moving toward the community college/adult education center type of institution. (nl)
