Second Annual Report of the National Advisory Committee on Adult Basic Education.
President's National Advisory Committee on Adult Basic Education, Washington, DC.
This report of the President's National Advisory Committee on Adult Basic Education describes the current Federal Adult Basic Education program, and summarizes a study of selected Federal programs with adult basic education components. The report also contains eight recommendations which the committee believes are essential to the further development of more than twenty million adults across the United States. Among the latter are that: (1) Federal responsibility for education of adults be centered in the Office of Education; (2) present regulations governing state program operations be amended to provide for an annual work plan setting forth the population to be served, the procedures for developing state teacher-training capability, priorities for experimental and demonstration projects, and the relationship of the work plan to the total educational program of the state; and (3) that $300 million per year for the fiscal years 1971-75 be appropriated for adult basic education. Appendices include distribution of enrollment in national teacher-training programs, description of special experimental demonstration projects, and the Federal programs surveyed with adult basic education components.
