The Right to Participate in Extension Programs.
Kirby, Edwin L.
This paper discusses the national trend for expansion of Extension programs emphasizing national issues receiving priority attention. It emphasizes a need for program balance and realism, and the obligation to provide educational assistance to all segments of society. Representation on committees to help determine programs is considered a must for volunteer motivation. Fuller utilization of total university resources through the Cooperative Extension Service is reported to be a significant development. It is emphasized that decisions to organize, to staff and meet pressing needs within a State are best decided within that State rather than at the national level. Continuing emphasis on agricultural needs, environmental quality improvement, and people problems is pointed out. (NF)
