Inventory of Continuing Education Activities in Pennsylvania Secondary School Districts for the Fiscal Year 1969-70. Final Report.
Harrison, Paul C., Jr.; Lindsay, Carl A.
The Bureau of Vocational, Technical, and Continuing Education of the Pennsylvania Department of Education sponsored its third annual inventory (July 1, 1969-June 30, 1970) to obtain detailed, current data regarding continuing education opportunities available to adults and out of school youth, and to formulate these data into a substantive basis for effective, coordinated development of future programs. Questionnaires were sent to each of the 572 secondary school districts and area vocational/technical schools in the Commonwealth. After telephone followup, 558 returns (98%) were received. Of those responding, 313 schools (56%) indicated that they conducted continuing education while 245 had no such program. About 189,000 registrations were reported--roughly 20,000 in adult basic education, 103,000 in general adult noncredit courses, and 66,000 in vocational education. Data were also collected on financing, staffing, and use of facilities in the reported programs; and analyses by type of school, geographic area, and expenditures were performed. (The document includes 18 tables, an activity summary for individual schools, and other statistics.) (Author/LY)
