Community Education: Final Report. A Position Paper Presented to the State Board for Community College Education.
Washington State Board for Community Coll. Education, Olympia. Advisory Council on Community Coll. Planning.
A conceptual basis within which all sponsors of community and continuing education can cooperate is proposed in this paper. Such cooperative agencies would include community colleges, school districts, community park and recreation departments, YWCA's, YMCA's, public and private four-year institutions, vocational-technical institutes, and all other sponsors of community education. Definitions of such terms as community education, continuing education, extension, community service courses, and community schools are included. The historical perspective and contemporary demand for community education are discussed. The roles of the various sponsors of community education are outlined with gaps and overlaps in service delivery identified. Funding practices are also reviewed. The final section of this document includes numerous recommendations as to the role of the community college in the delivery of community education programs. The need for cooperative effort with other community education related agencies is particularly stressed. (Author/JDS)
