Mid-Career Education for Municipal Clerks.
Smith, L. L.
In 1965, the concept and need for mid-career education for public administrators at the local level received attention through three studies (Detroit, Berkeley, Syracuse) sponsored by the National Institute for Public Affairs. There is agreement that the curriculum for such programs should be derived from the social sciences. Teaching methods should be varied, including involvement-type techniques related to the examination of value assumptions and personal perspectives; interim, back-home assignments should be incorporated when possible. The residential, intensive, and complex learning experience necessary to create an effect on the conduct of urban affairs requires funding beyond normal local resources; there must be an expansion of Federal funding.
