It Can Be Done: Practical Suggestions for Building an Adult Education Program That Has Impact.
Luke, Robert A.,Ed.; Warren, Virginia B., Ed.
This manual consists of suggestions for setting up new public school adult education programs and extending and enriching existing ones to attack such community concerns as unemployment and the effects of automation. Tax support and local control are considered essential in initiating a program. Suggested steps in planning are hiring the director, setting up advisory committees, planning the program content based on community needs, locating and preparing teachers, organizing the schedule, publicizing the program, and evaluating the program. Numerous case studies include reprints of letters written by adult educators while organizing, administering, extending, and publicizing programs in specific communities. Directories list state directors of adult education, state and regional associations of public school adult educators and their presidents, graduate programs in adult education, and NAPSAE project communities. The manual concludes with a digest of Federal legislation on adult education and list of NAPSAE program aids such as handbooks, periodicals, films, and filmographs. (se)
