The Colorado Case: Experiences and Accomplishments of the Colorado Lifelong Learning Project.
Knop, Sheila A.
This case study is intended to provide education planners in other states with information on Colorado's experience with the Lifelong Learning Project. It is organized into several sections. To set the context, major circumstances affecting state-level planning and policy development are described. They are presented under two headings: (1) demographic, economic, and employment circumstances; and (2) learning and education circumstances. The state's approach to adapting and pursuing Education Commission of the States project goals is presented. The next section details purposes, procedures, and results of project activities from mid-1980 through September, 1982. These activities are included: informal interviews to solicit views on issues, problems, and cooperation; a survey on issues in Colorado adult learning and education; a survey on responsibility for solving adult education problems; a conference on improving adult education services in Colorado; an interorganizational planning group; a staff paper; and project presentation. Activities planned for coming months are also discussed. The final section provides conclusions and suggests a number of implications about state planning and policy development. Appendixes include descriptive results of the two surveys and a conference program. (YLB)
