Recommendations for Adult Education Program for "Model Schools" Program for 1968-1969 School Year and Long-Range Plans for Adult Education Center.
Mulvey, Mary C.; Schaefer, Carol
The preliminary report provides suggestions for improvement and expansion of adult and continuing education programs, cultural enrichment, and guidance services to raise the educational and economic level of the Providence community. Short range goals emphasize meeting the needs of the lower income groups through Adult Basic education and English as a second language, high school equivalency, job retraining, womens education, and education for leisure and retirement. Long range goals include formal credit courses beyond high school level, studies for everyday living, training for volunteer work and community leadership, counseling and guidance programs, and career oriented adult education. Current programs are described and include Project ARISE (Adult Referral and Information Service in Education), Community Schools, Central Evening School, Office of Guidance and Placement, and the Transitional Room. Recommendations for funding a short range program beginning September 1968 include publication and distribution of an ARISE Directory, coordination and supervision of community schools, enlarging the scope of the TV High School, the addition of Movie High School, and provision of additional transitional rooms to provide an adult atmosphere. Long range plans and a list of advisory committee members are also included. (pt)
