Equity of Access: Continuing Education and the Part-Time Student. 9th Annual Report.
National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education, Washington, DC.
The National Advisory Council's annual report focuses on the dramatically increasing numbers of adult Americans who are continuing their education on a part-time basis; in this regard, the council recommends the adoption of a national statement of policy reaffirming the need for lifelong learning opportunities for all citizens. In support of this policy, the council submits specific recommendations: (1) to help improve the access of adult part-time students to these opportunities, and (2) to help develop professional manpower to serve adult learning needs and to design alternate educational programs on their behalf. A major task of the council was to complete a congressionally mandated evaluation of Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965 ("Community Service and Continuing Education"). The recommendations stemming from this evaluation are incorporated into the annual report. Appended to the summary of recommendations are: (1) a summary of supportive statistical data on adult part-time students, presented in narrative form, with an attached copy of the council's letter to United States senators, recommending appropriate actions, (2) a report from the Community Service and Continuing Education Program (Title I) to the council; and (3) a directory of State-supported Title I projects.
