A Challenge for the Future.
Weiss, Marvin W.
From no action to co-action through cooperation should become a maxim for community educators in community colleges, local school districts, universities, and all agencies concerned with adult and/or community education. Barriers to interinstitutional cooperation should be eliminated through delineation of the roles of community colleges and community schools relative to community education, development of a better awareness among educators of these institutional roles, and cessation of "empire building". Some specific activities that institutions involved in community education might engage in are: (1) cooperative program funding; (2) cooperative program supervision; (3) cooperative program/activity development; (4) use of volunteer teachers; (5) cooperative use of resources; (6) development and conduct of joint community needs surveys; (7) establishment of information banks to be shared; and (8) expansion of efforts in the area of community development. The outcomes which can be expected from interinstitutional cooperation include better use of tax dollars and better service to the community. (Author/JDS)
