Abstracts of Selected Cooperative Adult Education Programs.
Granger, James C., Ed.; And Others
Second in a series of five, the document presents abstracts of 29 cooperative adult education programs selected from across the nation. The format of each abstract includes the following information: (1) cooperating parties--private industry and State educational agency; (2) cooperation--type of activity provided by each party; (3) purpose--overall purpose and area of focus; (4) participant characteristics; and (5) abstract information--program overview, areas of concern, and additional information. The cooperative adult education project focused upon the area of industry/education cooperation, and the main concern was not to evaluate existing programs but to use them as a guide to determine what type of programs should exist. Parameters which defined programs for inclusion in the study included: (1) cooperation between private business, industry, or group of industries and a State educational agency; (2) contribution of at least one of the following by each organization--direct funding, participant or teacher release time, intensive planning, facilities, and equipment or materials; (3) participants must be adults; and (4) program focus must be on job skills training, basic education, computational skills, writing, speaking, or English as a second language. Of the 29 programs described, 21 are inplant programs offered for employees only. Appended is a list of the project advisory committee. (KH)
