Synergy in Urban Relationships--Public School Adult Education, Community Colleges, and Community Education.
Griffith, William S.
The presentation reviews selected developments in inter-organizational cooperation and coordination at the local, State, and national levels in order to provide a basis for identifying major questions and issues faced by the National Council of Urban Administrators of Adult Education (NCUAAE) as they strive for synergy in adult education. Trends and innovations in organizational development are capsulized for: California, New York, Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Virginia, and Massachusetts. Special attention is directed to two doctoral dissertations concerning community education at Flint, Michigan, and a nationwide survey of interagency cooperation of agencies in each State responsible for adult and continuing education, vocational and technical education, and community junior colleges. Likewise, efforts of the 1975 national seminar of leaders in adult continuing and community education (Flint) are viewed as a strong potential source of coordination. NCUAAE members are presented with 11 pertinent issues related to joint national conferences, advisement of State legislatures on coordination in adult education, coordination with postsecondary/secondary level institutions, Community Education Act, adult education program funding in urban areas, research funding, improved delivery systems for adult education, and adoption of a policy on synergy in adult education.
