An Analysis of Selected Issues in Adult Education. Final Report. Volume III of III. Two Bibliographies.
Kirschner (E.J.) and Associates, Washington, DC.
The document is an appendix to the final report of an analysis of selected issues in adult education; it comprises an annotated bibliography and a selective bibliography of references consulted in the study. Abstracted are 100 references that mention roles, policies, and/or strategies for Federal involvement in adult education. References directly addressing Federal policy questions include publications by national advisory councils mandated to speak to some form of adult education policy annually. Additional publications cited mention Federal roles while exploring roles for non-Federal involvement in adult education. The issues addressed are: reconceptualization of adult education; management of Federal adult education programs; and provision of resources to adult education. Some implicit policy trends noted in the references are: consensus that the Federal government should continue support for adult basic and adult secondary education while supporting and encouraging the lifelong learning movement; that current data are inadequate; that educational pluralism must be perpetuated; and that Federal programs need improved management and coordination. The selective bibliography of references consulted in the study includes Federal documents, from Congress, the executive branch, councils and national commissions; expert opinion in publications, unpublished materials, and book reviews; and interest groups, State publications, general literature, and bibliographies consulted.
