Recurrent Education in the State of New York.
Regan, Peter F.; And Others
The report on postsecondary education in New York State is a general survey of general education, technical education, and professional education programs in the State's postsecondary educational institutions. The report's introductory sections present current and projected statistics on numbers of colleges and students and discuss the basic educational programs and the standardized examinations used in establishing student proficiencies in certain academic areas. The discussion of general education programs covers the various programs, including a special baccalaureate program for adults, a weekend college program, a university without walls, and the Regent's External Degree Program, at eight New York postsecondary institutions. The survey of technical education reviews the technical programs in the State's community colleges, and agriculture and technical institutes, and the minimal offerings of the State's non-public junior colleges. The discussion of professional education describes various methods employed for maintaining professional knowledge and skill: the use of media, career ladders programs, preceptorship programs for intra-professional advancement, independent ventures, and organizational efforts toward coherent patterns. The report concludes with discussions of problems and policy considerations affecting adult education in New York State. (JR)
