Report of the Committee on Education to the President's Commission on the Status of Women.
President's Commission on the Status of Women, Washington, DC.
The educational needs of all women in the United States were studied. Educational opportunities for the mature women fall very short of the need. The committee therefore recommends that: (1) a large-scale effort be made to provide a system of elementary and secondary education for adults, with regard for the special needs of women and for the life experiences of all adults; (2) the opportunities for mature women to continue their education beyond high school be greatly expanded and adapted to their needs; (3) funds be made available to colleges, universities, and vocational, technical, and professional schools to help mature women complete, augment, or redirect their education; and part-time students be eligible under Federal-aid and university-aid financial programs; and (4) new and imaginative educational programs be developed for the woman in her home. Educational changes that are needed in the school and college years are related to improving the educational opportunities for all of the Nation's children. The committees recommendations are that: (1) expanded educational opportunities of high quality be provided for all groups in our society from kindergarten through graduate school; (2) skilled counseling be an integral part of education; (3) an examination be made of all educational programs to prepare females for homemaking; (4) education in volunteer work be given.
