A Study of Adult Education Programs within the State of Nebraska of 329 Public School Districts Maintaining Secondary Schools.
This study gathered information in regard to the extent to which public school districts maintaining a secondary school either operated or planned to develop an adult education program. Information was gathered from all 329 public school districts maintaining secondary schools. Of the 329 schools, 132 indicated that they had an adult education program, while 197 reported that they did not have such a program, but 140 of them indicated that they would like to develop an adult education program. The study determined how many administrators and teachers were involved in the adult education programs and the types of courses which they were teaching. Information was also secured as to what additional courses schools maintaining adult education programs would like to offer as well as proposed courses which schools would offer if they could develop an adult education program. A final question dealt with the physical location of adult education classes. The study suggests that there is a moderate amount of adult education activity now underway in Nebraska public schools and that there is considerable interest in and a potential for additional courses in existing programs and for the development of new adult education programs. The study also suggests that there are many individuals involved in administering and teaching in adult education for whom experiences in formal and informal education activities in adult and continuing education would be desirable.
