The Few and the Many; Two Views on Public Affairs Education. Notes and Essays on Education for Adults, 38.
Freedman, Leonard; Power, Hilton
Two adult educators offer their personal evaluations of nationwide needs for (and existing provision of) public affairs education, and each offers recommendations for improving university adult education on issues of national and international concern. Referring to the problem of a relatively uninformed public, Freedman calls for deeper, more meaningful programs for the minority with a serious and sustained interest in public areas, and greater cooperative planning by university extension agencies. Power suggests that universities should experiment vigorously with centrally prepared discussion materials, new cooperative relationships and program planning, as shown in the Great Decisions Program in Colorado, maximum use of present resources, and other means of reaching a wider range of the population.
