The Opportunity for a Lifetime: A Look at Continuing Education and What the Washington Community Colleges Are Doing About It.
Lee, Raymond E.
Following a study of the educational needs of adults in the State of Washington, the 1967 Washington Legislature passed the Community College Act of 1967, which established the community college system. It was expressly stated in the purpose of the law that community services of an educational cultural, and recreational nature, and adult education should have equal emphasis with transfer courses and occupational education. The 1969 Legislature made the Community College System responsible for virtually all adult education in the state. Adult education was .3% of the total college program in 1963-65, whereas in 1968, it was 2.85%. There are six adult education categories that are approved for state support. The programs that have been initiated provide courses that extend from those who have little or no education to those who have spent a lifetime in formal training. (DB)
