Adult Education in the Units of the Montana University System.
Livingston, Derrald Edward
This study traced the historical development of adult education in the Montana University System, ascertained present adult education practices and philosophies in the system, investigated implementation of the centralized control of adult education within the system, and formulated recommendations for future adult education programs in its six units. A questionnaire, followed by a personal interview, was given to the adult education director at each unit. University objectives mainly involved educating the youth of the state, which was being done well; but the adult education program was deficient in many respects. Several objectives were suggested for extension program planning and administration. Recommendations called for a central office for adult education offerings; a research specialist to survey educational needs and wants, find convenient facilities, and locate qualified teachers in local communities; an adult education director at each unit to back up and follow up the work of the specialist; fuller cooperation among units; and active administrative support.
