McClusky, Howard Y.
This document provides information for the use of leaders concerned with the development of proposals and recommendations for national policy consideration. The first four sections discuss: the need for continuous education in the later years as a means to improve the circumstances of the older people; long-range goals of educational programs for the elderly; knowledge available on the present status of educational organizations and programs specifically related to the aging; and identifiable gaps involved in meeting their educational needs. The fifth section of the paper raises several issues relevant to education for older people. The purpose of the issues is to focus discussion on the development of recommendations looking toward the adoption of national policies aimed at meeting the educational needs of the older population.
