Physical Facilities in the Education and Training of Adults; Memorandum on Sparse Research and Development Literature.
This is a critical review of adult education facilities in the realm of formal education (elementary and high schools, junior colleges, colleges and universities), as well as in business and industry, churches and synagogues, community organizations, government agencies at all levels, the armed forces, and proprietary schools (correspondence and other types of private, profit-making schools). It is emphasized that the formal system of schools and universities is not the chief provider of adult education, and that the problem of facilities must be considered in business and industry and a wide array of other organizations in which education is a vital instrumental function but not the primary purpose. Various implications and unanswered questions are raised. Also included are five general references, a 50 item annotated bibliography, notes on availability and document ordering, and a list of other ERIC/AE publications. (ly)
