Enhancing the State Role in Lifelong Learning. Case Studies of the Six Pilot States.
Coffey, Janis Cox; And Others
During a pilot project on the state role in facilitating adult learning, six states were asked (1) to establish and maintain a participatory planning mechanism for gathering information and building consensus among the public and private agencies and institutions within their states and (2) to use that mechanism in formulating policy recommendations on key aspects of the adult learning scene. This report, one in a series of publications developed under the project, describes the experiences of the project's six pilot states in clarifying the roles that states can play in planning for the provision of adult learning. For each of the six states (California, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, New York, and Ohio), demographic and background data found, results and products created, and publications written are discussed. A summary of the results of each of the six projects is included. (KC)
