Message from the President of the United States Transmitting the Fifth Annual Report of the National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education.
National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education, Washington, DC.
This document, under transmittal letter from the President, contains the recommendations and findings of the National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education with respect to federal involvement in programs for adult education. Recommendations include: (1) The Administration should develop a mechanism at the federal level to coordinate and possibly consolidate all existing programs that have as a major thrust the post-secondary continuing education of adult citizens; (2) The State governments should develop state-wide administrative agreements through the utilization of educational resources to implement effective and efficient programs in continuing education in cooperation with federal agencies; (3) Steps should be taken to expand the federal and state roles in the administration of post-secondary programs for adults under Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965. Appended to this Report is a report to the Council of activities conducted under Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965. It is noted that in the face of severe budget restraints and rigorous re-examination of educational priorities, the Council finds that continuing education and community service needs of the nation have not suffered irreparable damage.
