Extension Service Responsibilities in Civil Rights.
Kirby, Edwin L.
Speaking to a meeting of national program leaders, the Extension Service administrator points out that as an educational institution and as public employees paid from taxpayers' money the extension service has an obligation to serve all segments of society within the framework of its responsibilities. Questions raised involve whether equal opportunity in programs is provided through response to demands and whether innovative ways might be designed to stimulate participation among low income families and small farmers. The administrator calls upon program leaders to consider five ways which relate Extension Service goals to their own situations and asks for their assistance. (MS)
