Response to Need: A Case Study of Adult Education Graduate Program Development in the Southeast.
Kozoll, Charles E.
A discussion of adult education programs for blacks is presented. Six state directors of adult education started a program of staff pre-service and in-service training. Basic problem areas in this endeavor are two: (1) the need for restraining and guiding program growth and (2) the need for an examination of the content and form of training to be provided. The impetus and momentum for growth existed in the Southeast. Changes have been made in Adult Basic Education (ABE) through higher educational involvement; basically this has meant increased professionalism in adult education and a greater realization of and appreciation for the techniques of teaching adults. It is recommended that the emphasis should now be on modifying and guiding the directions of growth with the higher educational institutions. It is concluded that the network for providing graduate instruction, the first cooperative regional effort to establish a coordinated adult education training system in the nation, should be a vehicle for a new look in this field.
