Three papers from a half-day seminar which formed part of a meeting of the World Confederation of Organizations of the Teaching Profession have been compiled in this document. An Overview of Adult Education in England and Wales and the Role of the Professional Education Association by E. W. Foulser touches on the absence of a pattern in the provision of adult education, financial support for adult programs, problems and opportunities for public educators, and the role of the professional education association. The Long Term Adult Education Colleges by Mrs. K. Cockerill describes such colleges, their teaching patterns, historical background, financial support, enrollment patterns, and provisions for the further training of students. Adult Education Centers by Howard Gilbert briefly describes (1) the village or community college form and (2) the area adult education college form of adult education center. The Report of the Secretary of the Special Committee on Adult Education, by Robert A. Luke, follows the papers. Copies of the complete programs for both meetings are appended. (BP)
