Report of the Committee on Continuing and Community Education in British Columbia.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria.
The work of the Committee on Continuing and Community Education in British Columbia (composed of adult educators from universities, vocational schools, community colleges, school districts, and a community education center), forms the basis of this report. (The committee was appointed to study and recommend future policy on funding, administration, and programing of adult education activities of all public educational institutions.) Overall, higher educational priority and increased provincial government financial support for adult education is advocated. The recommendations presented stress the need for adoption of the concept of lifelong learning, tuition-free educational opportunity for every citizen to a level of grade 12 or its equivalent, and the government's role in the development of adult education. Major content is presented in seven sections: (1) The Present Situation, (2) Goals and Principles, (3) Structure and Roles (coordination of provincial and district levels and the roles of institutions), (4) Finance, (5) Special Concerns (program development and access, training in adult education, research, and collective agreements), (6) Issues for Further Investigation, and (7) Summary of Recommendations. The appendixes include a glossary, program categorization table, suggested funding guidelines, a schedule of public meetings, and a list of briefs, letters, etc. submitted to the committee. (SH)
