Inventory of Continuing Education Activities in Pennsylvania Secondary School Districts.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park.
Designed to help secondary school districts plan continuing education activities and to define possible areas of program coordination between districts, this 1970 inventory of continuing education activities represents responses from 353 (59.6%) of the secondary school districts in Pennsylvania. It indicates the number of courses (a total of 503) in general extension noncredit study, standard evening high school, technical and industrial education, adult basic education, vocational retraining, and six other broad subject areas; analyzes each subject area by specific courses and the number of districts offering them; and enumerates total course offerings by school districts and subject areas. General comments received from 102 districts mainly pertain to local programs, specific concerns, problems, and expectations. Compared to the previous year, there were more positive or optimistic responses; less stress on problems of securing suitable teachers and leadership; and less concern expressed as to lack of attendance or of financial aid. Registrations rose by 2%, and the number of participating districts, by 15%. (Included are the questionnaire and the list of participating districts.) (Author/LY)
