Message from the President of the United States Transmitting the Sixth Annual Report of the National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education; Ninety-Second Congress, Second Session.
National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education, Washington, DC.
This report presents the results of a comprehensive study of federally supported programs of extension, continuing education, and community service. The scope of the Council's activities was broadened to include, in addition to Title 1 activities, 142 other relevant Federal programs. Major recommendations include: (1) the establishment of knowledge receiving and transferring networks at State, national, and local levels to form a cohesive system for the identification of problems and for the organization of research and transfer of knowledge; (2) the establishment of a division of continuing education into which current community service and continuing education programs can be placed; (3) the use of the proposed division as a liaison between institutions and agencies and person within the government; (4) appropriations for the support of the State-grant program of community service and continuing education under Title 1; (5) that each agency assume responsibility for the development of evaluation standards and procedures for higher continuing education programs and for the dissemination of evaluation results; (6) that the Office of Management and Budget study program fund matching ratios, program overhead rates, program accounting, and other related regulations and develop appropriate remedies; and (7) the enactment of a Higher Continuing Education Act of 1972 and the amendment of Title 1 of the Higher Education Act.
