Frontiers in the Education of the Elderly.
Peterson, James A.
Demographic trends indicate a continued population rise among the elderly, suggesting an expanded market for adult education efforts. Early retirement, unemployment due to technological change, as well as the need for older workers to stay current in their fields all point in the direction of education of the elderly. The elderly report great concern with the growing violence in the nation, as well as with inflation, nutrition and general health. Classes under the direction of experts, with the fellowship of others like themselves, would help the aged feel better and learn things of practical importance to them. The aged do attend many of the classes that are offered today. Of critical importance for service to the aged is continued expansion of training programs for workers. (NG)
