Strategies of Leadership for Adult Basic Education.
Aker, George F.
A nation-wide program in adult basic education requires an organizational structure which will provide a practical and theoretical, centralized and decentralized outlook. This system should include a national commission, state-wide committees, and community councils which would facilitate communication. Leaders must be selected and prepared and educational programs developed and executed. These leaders can be recruited from the reserve of potential leaders available in communities. Training can be provided by professors of adult education, other university faculty, research and evaluation specialists, and teachers and aides. Systematic preservice and inservice training could be given to teachers at all levels; and methods such as weekend and evening community seminars, residential conferences, and internships, be utilized. However, in the process of developing these programs, we must be aware of the pitfalls which have appeared in this new field. (A list of 164 selected references is included). (nl)
