American Textbook Publishers Inst., New York, NY.; Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
American textbook publishers, meeting with representatives from government, education, the library field, and other sectors, held a two-day conference to consider curriculum needs, instructional materials, and research in progress in adult basic education and job skills training. Separate panel discussions centered on existing instructional materials, instructional programs in manpower development training, meeting the educational needs of school dropouts, selecting and improving the content of materials for the undereducated. Following the formal presentations, small groups discussed and reported their views on innovative practices and new publishing methods and techniques. An examination was also made of possible avenues of cooperation among the various interests involved in adult basic education. (ly)
