The Task Force on Adult and Continuing Education was charged to formulate a general agreement on practices, procedures, and a proposed design of a program of education for adults in Illinois. Other responsibilities have been formulating goals usable for adult educators in creating programs, determining procedures, and choosing technologies and curricula. Chapter 1, Needs Assessment, includes tables of adult population in selected counties and in Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSA) and non-SMSA areas reflecting high school dropouts, adults not completing elementary and secondary schools, Adult Basic Education Program, educational training programs for welfare recipients, results of GED (High School Equivalency Testing), and potential number of adults to be served. Chapter 2, Coordination of the Elementary and Secondary Adult Education Program, covers how the Task Force studied programs of selected States and arrived at its conclusion for a State-wide plan and also general principles, structure, and operational procedures to guide in the development of a recommended plan of coordination of elementary and secondary adult education. The problems of program costs and recommended components for funding are covered in chapter 3, while chapter 4 includes the legislative aspects. (EA)
