Gilder, Jamison, Ed.
This monograph reports the recommendations developed by a national assembly sponsored by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges with the aid of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation to consider issues and problems affecting lifelong education. An initial paper by Edmund J. Gleazer, Jr., outlines the purposes of the assembly in relation to the changing objectives of community college district systems. In a second paper, Harold L. Hodgkinson projects what education will look like in 1985 in terms of differential fertility, federalization of programs, the segmented education market, faculty diversification, and the costs of education. Herbert E. Striner discusses the pay-off of lifelong education and training as reflected in national capital investment and productivity, and in inmate training programs. Penelope L. Richardson appraises lifelong learning and politics based on her experience as former director of HEW's Lifelong Learning Project. In another paper, R. D. Justice and Jacquilyn Amperse explore obstacles to addressing the needs of the adult, part-time evening student. S. V. Martorana and Wayne D. Smutz review the official legislative policies of several states in regard to lifelong learning. In a final paper, Robert H. McCabe evaluates the restructuring of community colleges for lifelong education in terms of funding, educational attitudes, personnel policies, facilities, and program organization. (MB)
