New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Post-Secondary Continuing Education.
The document examines the adult population of New York State demographically in terms of potential participation in postsecondary continuing education. Information is divided into four sections of supplemental data. Section one, New York State Population, discusses the general characteristics of the adult population (those 25 and over). Section two, Educational Levels, state that less than 12 years of schooling has been received by 47 percent of the State population, with 31 percent receiving 12 years of schooling, and 22 percent having 13 or more years of education. Potential participants in the educational programs number 3.5 million. Section three, Specific Populations to Be Served by Postsecondary Continuing Education, examines women, senior citizens, and the educationally and economically disadvantaged. It is stated that this last group is in the most need of, and least represented in, continuing education programs. Section four, Summary of Report, presents the specific group statistics. Federal census data and estimated adult learning audience for New York State (1970), a list of 1974 New York State legislative bills concerning senior citizen education, two tables regarding New York State's economically disadvantaged, data on the Higher Education Act of 1965, and a legislative memorandum regarding program support are appended.
