New Careers and Adult Education.
Rosen, Sumner M.
There is a difference between the past and the present needs of the immigrants to America's urban areas; therefore the provision of relevant programs is tied to the awareness of existing conditions. Industry has moved to the suburbs and there has been an increase in service-oriented occupations. To meet the challenge posed by the changes, we need to develop a strategy of looking at the service itself, at its functions, and asking how to design, create, and provide a more meaningful, humane system of education, health, and social services. The recall of retired teachers and other professionals is not the solution. The writer advocates integration so that at every level that a human being functions in a human service agency, his training or education enables him to function adequately and competently. With this in mind, nurses' aides who are given additional responsibility when the professional nurses are absent need more training. Furthermore, shortages can be met by recruitment of teachers' and nurses' aides from a vast reservoir of motivated, interested individuals in the city. (NL)
